A review Study on Patients Radiation Dose from Diagnostic Radiography
Abstract: Medical x-ray exposures have the largest man made source of population exposure to ionizing radiation in different countries. Recent developments in medical imaging have led to rapid increases in a number of high dose x-ray examinations performed with significant consequences for individual patient doses and for collective dose to the population as a whole. It is therefore important in each country to make regular assessments of the magnitude of these large doses. Numerous research and techniques have been developed worldwide to measure these doses by using different tools for calculating and evaluation of doses. In this study we aimed to review the previous study which has been done in this topic.
