Wambani JS, Korir GK, Tries MA, et al. Patient Radiation Exposure During General Fluoroscopy Examinations.J Appl Clin Med Phys. 2014 Mar 6;15(20:262-270.

The purpose of this study was to assess the level of patient radiation dose received in general fluoroscopy examinations, compare the findings with the international diagnostic reference levels (IDRLs), and establish the initial institutional (local) LDRLs. The majority of the examinations in the study were performed with longer fluoroscopy time, patient dose values per examination type were found to be broad and the mean values above the international diagnostic reference levels. This calls for proper and improved training and radiation protection skills for the responsible personnel, especially the equipment operators.
