To assess occupational lens exposure in a mixed interventional radiology department, comparing pediatric and adult procedures. To analyze the correlation between the lens dose and the doses measured at the chest and collar level and the kerma-area product (P KA). Methods. Aug 04, · Normal imaging was reported more frequently in infected children comparing to adults (% versus %). Most frequent CT feature for pediatric patients was peripheral distribution and with decreasing order of frequency next features were GGO, bilateral involvement, unilateral involvement, consolidation, crazy paving pattern, nodular opacities, pleural effusion, central distribution.
It is of interest to quantify the radiation dose received by a patient undergoing a CT examination, and national surveys generally show that this imaging technique is the dominant contributor to medical radiation exposure .Knowledge of an individual organ absorbed dose permits the determination of the probability of inducing deterministic effects such as skin burns or epilation and any.

Children's (Pediatric) Imaging. Tests, treatments and safety considerations specific to children are listed below. Many other imaging tests and treatments also have special pediatric considerations, indicated by the teddy bear icon. Children and Radiation Safety. The optimization of protection in children’s radiology examinations requires the use of examination-specific protocols tailored to the patient’s age and size, the region of imaging and clinical indication. This ensures that the dose to each patient is as low as reasonably achievable for the clinical purpose of the examination. Frequently asked questions by the health.
