The new Radiation Protection and Safety of Radiation Sources: International Basic Safety Standards (BSS) was published by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as General Safety Requirements Part 3 in July 2014. 

In terms of Justification of medical exposures the BSS covers four areas of responsibilities for the protection and safety of patients. It states that the person or organisation responsible for facilities and activities that give rise to radiation risk shall have the prime responsibility for protection and safety.  Paragraphs 2.40 and 2.41 state that other parties such as the referring medical practitioner, medical physicist, and Medical Radiation Technologists (MRT) (radiographer), shall also have specified responsibilities.

Justification can be explained as the process of weighing the expected benefits of an exposure against the possible detriment of the associated dose. The benefit or versus detriment may relate to the individual and/or to society as a whole.

Muriel Chesney, and her twin sister Noreen were famous in the world of Radiography and were joint authors of several radiography papers and textbooks, including Radiographic Anatomy of the Chest and Abdomen; Radiographic Photography; Care of the Patient in Diagnostic Radiography; and X-Ray Equipment for Student Radiographers.
