Institutional computed tomography diagnostic reference levels based on water-equivalent diameter and size-specific dose estimates.


Size-specific institutional diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) were generated for chest and abdominopelvic computed tomography (CT) based on size-specific dose estimates (SSDEs) and depending on patients' water-equivalent diameter (Dw). 1690 CT examinations were included in the IRB-approved retrospective study. SSDEs based on the mean water-equivalent… (More)
