Third UK National CT dose survey

In 2011, the HPA conducted a third survey of CT practice covering the whole of the UK. The aims were to assess changes since the last survey in 2003, provide guidance for more recently established examinations, update existing examination specific national reference doses, and provide a baseline for potential follow-up optimisation studies.

Members of the CTUG were greatly involved in this survey, and updates were provided at subsequent meetings.

The results of this survey were published in 2014, as PHE-CRCE-013: Doses from computed tomography (CT) examinations in the UK (2011 Review).
