Radiation exposure in X-ray studies of the hips

Journal Article:

Abstract

The genetic exposure of the small child is above all a consequence of the rapid increase in X-ray studies, a problem which has not yet been settled. Through phantom measurements it can be shown, that dose reduction is of considerable practical significance if appropriate lead shielding is employed. The radiation dose can be significantly reduced, provided that the shielding material is of an appropriate lead equivalent. The form of the pelvic shield which is used is also of crucial importance.
