Abstract


In this work, the predicted skin doses of patients undergoing routine medical examinations were carried out at Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi. Measurements were also made using phantoms and Thermo-Luminescence Dosimeter (TLD) in place of patients in order to compare the results obtained. The predicted mean chest doses for 100 patients undergoing routine medical examinations at Federal Medical Centre Makurdi were 724.964

Author Keywords: Dosimetry, Radiation Protection, Phantoms.
