'Effective Dose' Useful Estimate of Radiation-Related Risks

To estimate the magnitude of radiation-induced cancer risk, we need to know the doses delivered by the various dentomaxillofacial imaging modalities and protocols.  Effective Dose: Radiation doses from diagnostic radiographic examinations are conveyed using a term called "effective dose." Effective dose is a radiation unit that is used to estimate the detriment from stochastic effects of radiation. Effective dose is typically determined using a tissue-equivalent anthropomorphi more...
