The first clinical use of X-rays in what we now call diagnostic radiology, came just a few months after the discovery of X-rays in late 1895. To date, diagnostic radiology accounts for a very large fraction of all man-made radiation doses and some 90% of all medical radiation doses. Although the doses which are delivered are typically very small fractions of the doses delivered in radiotherapy, the numbers of people undergoing diagnostic X-ray examination can be very large, giving rise to concerns regarding population dose. Subject Dose in Radiological Imaging provides comprehensive coverage - both content-wise and geographical - on the subject of doses in radiological imaging. It offers theories, principles, applications and results. The contributors, who are recognized authorities in their chosen area of specialization, give a review of the areas identified in their titles and indicate the developing trends (past, present and future scenarios). In some parts of the book a sophisticated understanding of the radiation technology which underlies the theme of this book is assumed. However, other parts have been written to accommodate a broader audience of medical specialists, radiation health technologists such as radiographers and dosimetrists, and students.
