Project description

Calculation of effective doses from measured dose-area product (DAP) values allows a risk estimation of the effects of medical exposures. In the framework of present project tables with conversion coefficients will be worked out allowing the calculation of effective doses from DAP values for patient dosimetry in interventional radiology and cardiology.
