Establishing institutional adult computed tomography dose reference levels at a public tertiary hospital in Singapore
This study aims to establish institutional DRLs for the four most common adult CT examinations in Department of Radiology (DoR) in Sengkang General Hospital (SKH), namely CT Brain (non-contrast), CT Chest (contrast, single phase), CT Abdomen-Pelvis (contrast, portal venous phase), and CT Kidney-Ureter-Bladder (KUB) (non-contrast). The primary purpose of this study is to determine our facility’s median (50th percentile) DRL, in line with ICRP recommendations. Our secondary aim is to compare our obtained institutional DRLs with that of other facilities, both at a local as well as at an international level.
