Summary of "Evidence on radiation dose reduction using rectangular collimation: a systematic review."

The goal of an intraoral radiograph is to be a valuable diagnostic tool while keeping the radiation exposure dose as low as reasonably achievable. The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) has strong recommendations for patient dose-reduction strategies.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).

The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.
