Comparing risk estimates following diagnostic CT radiation exposures employing different methodological approaches.

Abstract

The current study has two aims: the first is to quantify the difference between radiation risks estimated with the use of organ or effective doses, particularly when planning pediatric and adult computed tomography (CT) examinations. The second aim is to determine the method of calculating organ doses and cancer risk using dose-length product (DLP) for… (More)
