Abstract

Digital radiography is often performed at a higher dose rate than analogue radiography for image acquisition. The authors measured the Entrance Surface Dose (ESD) of analogue and digital radiography techniques for 14 radiographic examinations from randomly selected medical centres in the central district of Korea. It was that the mean ESD of the digital examinations was 2.84 mGy (range, 0.37-6.38 mGy) and that of the analogue examinations was 1.83 mGy (range, 0.38-4.74 mGy), resulting in a 55.25 % higher ESD for digital technique. Although this survey is not completely representative of Korea, findings of this study indicate a need for closer exposure management in digital radiography to minimise patient dose.
