Abstract This report provides a summary of the presentations and discussions that took place during the December 8-9, 2011, workshop titled Tracking Radiation Exposures from Medical Diagnostic Procedures. The workshop was organized by the Nuclear and Radiation Studies Board of the National Academy of Sciences and sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. This workshop report was authored by a six-member committee of experts appointed by the National Academy of Sciences. To respond to its statement of task, the workshop committee brought together public health regulators, physicians, manufacturers, researchers, and patients to explore why, what, and how to track exposure from medical diagnostic procedures and possible next steps. The committee is responsible for the overall quality and accuracy of the report as a record of what transpired at the workshop, but the points discussed do not represent a consensus of the workshop participants or the authoring committee; instead, they represent views expressed by individual participants during the workshop.
