The aim of the study was to determinate Dental Radiology behaviour in Murcia Community to control the European Union Recommendations. 1822 official reports on quality assurance in intraoral radiology and 155 official reports on panoramic radiology have been studied. The results indicate that one and a half of intraoral radiographic equipments studied and 6´24% in panoramic had alterations. Only the 63´54% of the surgeries achived the European Community Recommendations of intraoral radiology working to 70 kVp, 8 mA and 1.5 mm of Al. There have been a decrease of the intraoral radiation dose exposured. The recent legislation have meant a decrease in the intraoral radiation dose administrated despite of the unachivement of European Community Recommendations.
