DOSE ASSESSMENTS IN MEDICAL APPLICATIONS

G4 9Special glove with casings to hold extremity dosemeters; (b) dose distribution assuming the results of the 78 biopsies studied (lung, bone, etc tissue), before the use of needle holder; (c) (b) dose distribution assuming the results of the 78 biopsies studied after the use of needle holder; (d) example of a needle holder.

 

As far as mammography is concerned, one relevant work we developed characterizes the practice at 65 mammography units and the other presents dose reference levels measured with TLD and direct readings later compared with European reference documents and recommendations. Another relevant achievement in this field concerns the use of needle holders in fluoro-CT biopsies collections showing the improvements in practical radiation protection and in dose reduction.
