Abstract

The benefits of diagnostic imaging are immense and have revolutionized the practice of medicine. The increased sophistication and clinical efficacy of imaging have resulted in its dramatic growth over the past quarter century. However, the evolution of imaging has also resulted in a significant increase in the population's cumulative exposure to ionizing radiation and a potential increase in cancer risk. The ACR, an advocate for radiation safety since its inception in 1924, convened the ACR Blue Ribbon Panel on Radiation Dose in Medicine in 2006 and issued 37 recommendations for the College to address these issues. This report updates the status of these recommendations.
