Report No. 251 - Survey of Pediatric Fluoroscopic Air Kerma Rate Values and Recommended Application of Results (2022)

Category: Reports

The AAPM charged Task Group 251 (TG-251) with collecting fluoroscopic and fluorographic air kerma rates (AKRs) as a function of simulated patient thickness from infants to adult-sized patients, to survey the state of the practice, and to disseminate this information so that qualified medical physicists (QMPs) could compare their measurements for a typical range of patient sizes to the task groupís published results.
