Medical exposures

Radiation is used in connection with several kinds of examinations, therapies and treatments in the care sector. Those who perform medical or dental care are responsible for ensuring that their practices are safe for patients, staff and the general public.

The role of the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority in relation to health, medical and dental services includes issuing radiation protection requirements, considering licence applications and performing follow-ups to ensure that those operating these services are in compliance with applicable rules and regulations.
