Assessment of Dose Reference Levels for common radio-Diagnostic procedures in South West Nigeria
Goals/Objectives of Project
- Assess quality control compliance to radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, and angiography and computed tomography (CT) imagining services at selected hospital in South West Nigeria.
- Determine the Patient Skin entrance dose (PSED) due to radiography, mammography, fluoroscopy, angiography and computed tomography (CT) using thermo-luminescent dosimeter (TLD) chips and diode detectors in the selected hospitals.
- Develop indigenous standard dose Reference Dose Level (DRL) and compare the results with the adopted International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) standards.
