PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate calibrations for improved estimates of skin dose and to develop software for computing absorbed organ doses for fluoroscopically guided interventions (FGIs) with the use of radiation dose structured reports (RDSR) and the UF/NCI family of hybrid computational phantoms. METHODS AND MATERIALS Institutional review board approval was obtained for this retrospective study in which ten RDSRs were selected for their high cumulative reference air… CONTINUE READING
