Paper Abstract

The recent awareness of higher radiation levels associated with some of the latest CT scanners points to the need for dissemination of meaningful quantitative dose data about these valuable imaging units. Examples of such data, from radiation protection surveys, will be presented. Such information should afford CT users a basis for proper utilization of this modality within current radiation protection guidelines.
