Abstract
Establishing diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) in a big country is complicated due to differences in radiological practice between different regions. In 2009-2014, a dose survey was performed in six Russian regions. Based on the results of the survey, preliminary DRLs for conventional X-ray examinations were established on a national level. Additionally, the local authorities were granted the possibility to establish regional DRLs if the local dose distributions significantly differed from the proposed national DRLs.
