Method for dose optimization of computed radiography in clinical use (English)
Abstract [sv]

The county of Dalarna is at present carrying through a process of digitalization where traditional x-ray film is being replaced with digital detectors. Earlier used methods for dose optimization turned out not being sufficient. This report presents a method to harmonize dose levels between x- ray sites equipped with Fujifilm imaging plate systems. An exposure index, S, related to the dose level of the examination is computed to every x-ray image. S turned out to be inversely proportional to the detector dose used at the examination. Detector dose is also the one simulated factor that doubtlessly affects S the most.There are however a lot of parameters, e.g difference between patients, that are not easily simulated even though they still have considerable affect. The method for harmonizing dose levels between x-ray sites are based on statistics of collected S-values for a kind of examination. The average of the collected S-values levels variations and is a more solid measure of the dose level for the examination. By means of this method the dose level of frontal images of the lungs at a site have been reduced by 30 per cent without endanger the diagnostic security.
