Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly employed in radiation protection, encompassing both medical devices and software. These technologies are integrated with AI throughout their manufacturing and application processes. This article underscores the imperative for comprehensive regulation in the utilization of AI. Decisions regarding AI application should not solely rest with manufacturers, medical professionals, or patients. Instead, an overarching "neutral" authority must be engaged to regulate, review, and enforce adherence to established protocols. The authors contend that relying on "self-regulation" within the free market, absent clear guidelines, proves to be inadequately effective and leads to patient's radiation protection safety issues.
