For every diagnostical X-ray radiation exposure the applied dose has to be limited to the smallest possible value. Within the scope of a general Swiss survey it has been found that in the various medical practices and hospitals the applied doses varied quite strongly. The main reasons leading to an overdose were the operating conditions of the X-ray and film processing equipment, the film and foil materials and improper filming techniques. The applied single dose served as a measure for the radiation protection assessment of diagnostical X-ray exposures. To prevent this in the future, individual patients who are exposed to unnecessary radiation loads should be regularly checked in quality-ensuring tests.
