Radiation dose to the patient in several diagnostic X-ray examinations performed with conventional radiographic equipment in 3 major centers in Israel, a comparative study

Abstract

In this survey we determined the effective dose to the patient in specific x-ray diagnostic procedures performed in the radiology Department and emergency rooms in 3 major hospitals (A, B, and C) in Israel. In each hospital we measured the dose area product (DAP) in a number of several major diagnostic procedures. In each hospital we carried out measurements in two X-ray departments (A1, A2. B1, B2, C1, C2). The DAP measurements were carried out using a Diamentor Dose Area Product meter (DAP). The entrance dose was obtained using calibration measurements relating the exposure at a reference distance to the imaging parameters (kVp, mAs, filtration and distance) that were recorded in the examinations. The results will be presented and compared to the reference international guidance values (authors).
