dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to provide new data on patient doses for estimation purposes in conventional X-ray examinations in Red Sea State and to enhance and compare different dosimetric protocols to promote the establishment of Diagnostic Reference Levels (DRLs). Patients doses from conventional X-ray were calculated using CALDose. The study revealed that there is wide variations in patients’ doses within and between hospitals for conventional X-ray were observed. Even for the same type of X-ray equipment, the patient dose at different hospitals can vary widely. The causes for these wide variations in patient doses observed in this study required investigation to reduce the variability and ensure that all patient doses are as low as reasonably achievable. Furthermore, Local diagnostic reference levels (LDRLs) are suggested as a further step for patient dose optimization. en_US
