    It is known that medical applications using ionising radiation are wide spread and still increasing. Physicians, technicians, nurses and others constitute the largest group of workers occupationally exposed to man-made sources of radiation. Many hospital workers are consequently subjected to...

    Besides ongoing developments in the dosimetry of incorporated radionuclides, there are various efforts to improve the monitoring of workers for potential or real intakes of radionuclides. The disillusioning experience with numerous inter-comparison projects identified substantial differences...

    The purpose of the multi-centre study was to assess dose area product (DAP) and effective dose of patients undergoing angiography of the lower limbs in Belgium and to investigate the correlation between DAP and effective dose. DAP values were measured in 12 centres and compared with the national...

    The purpose of this study was to investigate how the choice of the scanned region affects organ doses in CT. ImPACT CT Patient Dosimetry Calculator (version 1.0) was used to compute absorbed doses to eight organs of interest in medical radiation dosimetry. For 13 dosimetry data sets, the authors...

    At present, methods of radiotherapy simulation for breast cancer based on four-dimensional computerised tomography (4D-CT) or three-dimensional CT (3D-CT) simulation remain controversial. In the present study, 7 patients with residual breast tissue received whole breast radiotherapy based on...

    In cardiology and interventional radiology, areas that contribute large components to medical radiation exposure, a major source of variation in patient dose is the variation in complexity between cases for nominally identical procedures. In patient dose surveys, this variation tends to mask...

    This investigation determined patient doses during digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Fluoroscopy time, dose-area product (DAP) and entrance surface air kerma (ESAK) were analysed from 263 DSA examinations, classified into seven categories: (1) abdominal aorta, iliac, femoral, popliteal and...

    Fire ants are one of the world's most damaging invasive pests, with few means for their effective control. Although ecologically friendly alternatives to chemical pesticides such as the insecticidal fungus Beauveria bassiana have been suggested for the control of fire ant populations, their use...

    Conversion coefficients for the estimation of effective doses in intraorsl and panommic dental radiology from dose-area product (DAP) values were determined by measuring organ-absorbed doses and the corresponding DAP values. Measurements were performed for all standard intraoral radiological...
