Esitmation of effective doses for barium meal fluoroscopic examinations

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding


The aim of the current study is to establish conversion coefficients (CCs) from dose-area product to effective dose for barium meal (BM) fluoroscopic examinations. The study is based on data collected at a major University hospital in St-Petersburg, Russia. The structure of the BM examinations was evaluated and a computational model for effective dose estimation, using PCXMC 2.0 software, was developed. Resulting values of CCs estimated in the study were comparable with previously published data for BM examinations.
