Energy imparted is a measure of the total ionizing energy deposited in the patient during a radiologic examination and may be used to quantify the patient dose in diagnostic radiology. Values of the energy imparted per unit exposure-area product, omega (z), absorbed by a semi-infinite water phantom with a thickness z, were computed for x-ray spectra with peak x-ray tube voltages ranging from 50-140 kV and with added filtration, ranging from 1-6 mm aluminum. For a given phantom thickness and… CONTINUE READING
