The radiation burden of an individual patient caused by a radiological examination depends strongly on the technical parameters, such as kV and mAs. As an inquiry among 150 swiss physicians showed, rather different irradiation techniques are used for the same examination. Depending on these irradiation techniques, the doses may vary by almost a factor of ten. These large variations in dose indicate that in some clinics or hospitals the radiographic techniques and the film processing are at fault. This fact has to be accounted for by future efforts of quality assurance in diagnostic radiology.
