Veterinary X-ray practices

The purpose of the guidelines is to facilitate the interpretation of radiation legislation and, thereby, to promote radiation safety in practice. The guidelines are not binding as such, but they reflect STUK's view on how the requirements of radiation legislation can typically be met in different circumstances.  The requirements of the legislation can also be fulfilled otherwise. Operators must consider how the instructions apply to their own practices on a case-by-case basis. Guidance is also given on practical measures and means to reduce the radiation exposure caused by the practice, where possible.
