The International Commission on Radiological Protection recommends diagnostic reference levels (DRL) in each radiological examination for justification and optimization of patients' dose in medicine. The aim of our study was to propose the dose management system by utilizing dose information in diagnostic X-ray radiation dose structured report (Dose SR) in The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine to optimize radiation dose in institutions. Our dose management system is able to organize dose information obtained from various angiography systems and CTs. It is possible to provide this information to operators for justification and optimization of patient dose. Our system would be useful for the estimation of organ dose and could be used for the determination of local DRL (LDRL) for each radiological practice. In addition, the optimization became possible to compare LDRL with national DRL.
