Learning outcomes:

Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 (IRMER) impose significant requirements for patient protection. This course will bring you up to date with the legislation concerning dental radiography and ensure you are aware of statutory responsibilities. Covering the principles of justification, optimisation and limitation this one day course satisfies both the IRMER regulations and core CPD requirements as recommended by the GDC.

By the end of the course participants should:


  • Know the changes to the legislation (IRR2017 and IR(ME)R2017) concerning dental radiography and be aware of their statutory responsibilities
  • Understand the principles of radiation physics
  • Know the risks of ionising radiation and the principles of radiation protection in dental radiography
  • Know the radiation doses in dental radiography and the factors affecting radiation dose
  • Understand the principles of a Quality Assurance programme
  • Understand the use of selection criteria in relation to dental radiography
  • Understand the various imaging modalities available, including 2D and 3D (CBCT) digital imaging, and the various factors that affect diagnostic yield
  • Have revised radiological interpretation of normal anatomy and a range of pathological conditions potentially presenting in dental practice


GDC Development outcomes:

C - Maintenance and development of knowledge and skill within your field of practice

D - Maintenance of skills, behaviours and attitudes which maintain patient confidence in you and the dental profession and put patients’ interests first
