Application of ionising radiation in healthcare is basic and routine in contemporary medicine. Benefits to patients from such application have been established beyond doubt ([ '''[ICRP''' '''''Publication 105''''']] Radiological Protection in Medicine). It is difficult to imagine a healthcare system without modern diagnostic imaging and image-guided interventional procedures. A survey of policy leaders in internal medicine rated computed tomography (CT) imaging as one of the main healthcare innovations in the 20th century (Fuchs and Sox, 2001[]). The applications of ionizing ionising radiation in healthcare are grouped as followinginclude:
* :1.1 [[Diagnostic radiology]]* * :1.2 [[Interventional procedures]]* * :1.3 [[Radiation therapy]]* * :1.4 [[Nuclear medicine]]* * :1.5 [[Biomedical research]]* * :1.6 [[Veterinary medicine]]
