To summarize the current state of the art and outline a roadmap for standardized estimation of organ doses from medical imaging. Experts would be recruited from the appropriate subcommittees, including but not limited to, Informatics, CT, RFSC, and Mammography, with work between the subgroups being coordinated by the task group co-chairs. The roadmap would include information about how radiation was applied, the location of the patient with respect to the source of radiation, and the patient model and methods used to estimate organ doses. Standard reporting methods, quantities, and units will also be recommended.
