Dose area product units

An Introduction to Fluoroscopy Safety

An Introduction to Fluoroscopy Safety 8 ambiguity as to what parameter is displayed. An example of a fluoroscopic dose display is shown on the right . Air kerma and kerma area product are both useful parameters. Air kerma is an expression of radiation at a point, so it would best predict skin injury.

Application of Dose-Area Product compared with three other ...

Dose-area product (DAP) DAP-meters measure the product of radiation dose to air and the area of the X-ray field. DAP is expressed in Gy.cm 2 or mGy.cm 2. An ionization chamber larger than the area of the X-ray beam is placed just under the X-ray collimators. The DAP ionization chamber must intercept the …

Calculating Organ Dose from Fluoroscopy

Is there a need to calculate patient-specific organ dose? Effective dose for long, complex interventional procedures could exceed 50 mSv Possibility of modeling organ dose prior to procedure to avoid radiosensitive organs Estimate biological response Compare with and add the dose to that from other techniques/technologies (CT, etc.)

DOSE-AREA PRODUCT MEASUREMENTS IN PANORAMIC …

In this study, dose-area product (DAP) measurements in panoramic dental radiology have been performed in Germany. The results obtained in this study were proposed as diagnostic reference levels (DRLs). A representative number of dental panoramic units, both with digital and conventional image receptors, have been chosen. Common statistical ...
