Paper Abstract

To date, in Computed Tomography (CT) various tech-niques have been utilized for measuring and reporting exposure. This report outlines some techniques for measuring exposures in CT. Due to the x-ray field geometry exposure measurements must be made carefully to assure accurate results. Films and TLD have generally been used and can be very time consuming. These two methods will be discussed. The utilization of an ionization chamber specifically designed to measure CT exposures will be introduced.
