California radiologists will be required to incorporate radiation dose levels in their reports under a measure signed into law Thursday by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The measure requires that radiologists include in their reports the dose length product or the CT dose index if the machine is able to calculate it.

Radiologists have never had to do that before, according to Don Stockett, a plaintiff’s attorney who consulted on the measure. He anticipates that other states will follow suit.
