General comment on establishment of DRL in Digital Radiography

There is a need to consider already existing exposure parameters (KV, mA, Time) and provide their link and contribution to the variations in the the use of DRL based on following reasons:

. They are familiar to the operators
. subjective in their selection and hence they control the patient dose
. their guidance charts available in most of radiology departments

This will help different organisations Establishing DRLs in digital radiography to better help the final users understand their uses from the already existing guiding exposure factors inplace.
