I thought you guys might be interested in this Australian initiative
that has recently opened.

Rather than transferring information directly electronically (e.g.,
via RDSR or OCRd dose screens), they are doing it as a web form based
survey.

As I understand it, they are starting out with MDCT, and asking the
users to enter CTDIvol, DLP and weight for each of 20 patients per
scanner per protocol per age group, a protocol being either Abdo/
Pelvis, Chest, Chest/Abdo/Pelvis, Head, Lumbar Spine, or Neck, an age
group being either Baby/Infant 0-4 years, Child 5-14 years, or Adult
15+ years.

Their site-specific reports then show, per scanner per protocol per
age group, mean DLP relative to the European Survey DRL.
