The National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) has recommended the introduction of dose-width product (DWP) for the measurement of patient dose in panoramic dental radiology and has proposed a reference level of 65 mGy mm for adult exposures. This paper describes a method for measuring DWP and dose-area product (DAP) using thermoluminescent dosemeters (TLDs). The technique was used on 16 sets with a range of exposure settings. The mean value of DWP was 14% higher than the mean value reported… CONTINUE READING
