The purpose of this report is to make available a source of practical information regarding the manner in which radiologic examinations in children should be conducted to reduce the radiation dose to these patients and those responsible for their care.

The report. is mainly for the use of pediatricians, radiologists, radiologic technologists, and other physicians and medical practitioners who order or use radiological methods in examining children. It is recognized that there are many approaches to the reduction of dose in the radiologic examination of children. The guidelines in this report are intended as assistance in the reduction of unnecessary radiation exposure and should not be construed as specific regulations.
