One should remember that some radiologists perform the examination without using fluoroscopy, because they have learned to do so, in a time when image intensifiers were not available. Dose-area product values in frequently performed complex paediatric radiology examinations.

A comparison of doses and techniques between specialist and non-specialist centres in the diagnostic X-ray imaging of children. Considering these factors and the following variables, a anatomic differentiation, b discrepancy among techniques utilized to obtain pediatric radiographic images and c different doses to which patients are exposed, the European Community has issued the European Guidelines on Quality Criteria for Diagnostic Radiographic Images in Paediatrics 5defining the quality criteria of images for most of these procedures.

After the bladder filling phase, the voiding study is performed with anteroposterior radiographs in the case of girls, and with lateral or oblique, in the case of boys.

Some procedures heterogeneity was observed and guidelines for good radiographic techniques were not followed. Patient dose reduction during voiding cystourethrography. Considering that the fluoroscopy time ranged from 82 to 1, seconds mean, secondsthe authors can suggest a radical reduction of this time.

Radiation doses to paediatric patients undergoing micturating cystourethrography examinations and potential reduction by radiation protection optimization. The routine for examination starts with an abdominal radiograph in anteroposterior projection, with the patient in dorsal decubitus.

However, considering the present guidelines, one out of four patients would have been exposed to a delayed or potentially missed diagnosis if recurrence would have been expected to complete the assessment. This chamber, positioned immediately below the collimator, registers the radiation emitted by the bulb during the examination time, ciistouretrografia the DAP and ESD in the patient being submitted to radiography and fluoroscopy.


Radiation dose measurement and risk estimation for paediatric patients undergoing micturating cysto-urethrography. In this latter hospital, the fluoroscopy time ranged from 0.

The adoption of radiography with cjstouretrografia kilovoltage technique and restricted utilization of fluoroscopy can result in a significant reduction of doses during this procedure, considering that the major contribution to the final dose cistourefrografia from fluoroscopy.

Voiding cystourethrography is considered the standard method in the evaluation of vesicoureteral reflux and malformations of the urethra and bladder 4. Pediatric radiation exposure and effective dose reduction during voiding cystourethrography. The comparison of doses in relation to sex demonstrated that, in spite the higher mean body mass index for girls, the dose on the boys was higher Table 4probably because of the inherent difficulties presented by the male anatomy, and the higher number of abnormal studies in boys, which caused greater time in fluoroscopy, and increase in dose.
