Abstract
This study is devoted to the assessment of the relations between the digital chest x-ray screening procedure parameters, different dose quantities (DAP, ESD, Effective dose) for different age and gender patient groups and patient’s anthropometric indicators. We selected the anthropometric indicators with the maximum impact on patient’s doses. We propose a new approach for the determination of the standard patient to be used for the medical exposure protection optimization using DRLs.
