Georg Stamm, Martin Fiebich
2017 Biomedical Engineering  
CTDI and DLP are the fundamental dose values for computed tomography examinations. They are the basis for advanced dose calculations including size specific dose estimates (SSDE) for establishing diagnostic reference levels and can be used to optimize the scan protocols. The basic concepts will be presented together with the assessment and optimization of the corresponding patient exposure. Local and international guidelines (AAPM) will be discussed in order to give practical hints for the use
