Dosis de radiación de los estudios de imágenes

RADIATION DOSES FROM MEDICAL IMAGING: A PRIMER FOR EMERGENCY PHYSICIANS
Jones J. et al. West J Emerg Med 2012; 13(2): 212-210



"Emergency physicians, now at the front line of patients’ exposure to ionizing radiation, should have a general understanding of the magnitude of radiation dose from advanced medical imaging procedures and their associated risks. Future areas of research should include the development of protocols and guidelines that limit unnecessary patient radiation exposure."

RADAR Medical Procedure Radiation
Dose Calculator
"This form gives radiation dose estimates for certain radiographic and nuclear medicine procedures, based on literature reported values. Individual organ doses and total body effective doses are given for these specified examinations, and some combinations of examinations. In addition, a short statement is generated, which may be useful as part of a patient consent form document, explaining the radiation doses as numerical values and as equivalent days of exposure to natural background radiation."
