... The DRLs were first introduced by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) in 1990 as a tool for radiation protection and optimisation [19]. Although the DRL concept was initially recommended for diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine examinations, it is now being adopted in radiation oncology to assess the CT dose during radiotherapy treatment planning [20][21][22]. Furthermore, the DRL ensures the delivery of optimum radiation dose during interventional radiology, including diagnostic and therapeutic procedures [23][24][25]. ...
