Radiation dose in non-dental cone beam CT applications: a systematic review

Radiation dose in non-dental cone beam CT applications: a systematic review Background Radiation-induced health risks are broadly questioned in the literature. As cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is increasingly used in non-dental examinations, its effective dose needs to be known. This study aimed to review the published evidence on effective dose of non-dental CBCT for diagnostic use by focusing on dosimetry system used to estimate dose. Materials and methods A systematic review of the literature was performed on 12 November 2017. All the literature up to this date was included. The PubMed and web of science databases were searched. Studies were screened for inclusion based on defined inclusion and exclusion criteria according to the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews. Results Fifteen studies met the inclusion criteria and were included in our review. Thirteen and two of them examined one and two anatomical areas, respectively. The anatomical areas were: ear (6), paranasal sinuses (4), ankle (3), wrist (2), knee (1), and cervical spine (1). Effective dose was estimated by different methods: (i) RANDO phantom associated with ther - moluminescent dosimeters (6), metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor dosimeters (3), and optically stimulated luminescent dosimeters (1).

Abstract

Background Radiation-induced health risks are broadly questioned in the literature. As cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is increasingly used in non-dental examinations, its effective dose needs to be known. This study aimed to review the published evidence on effective dose of non-dental CBCT for diagnostic use by focusing on dosimetry system used to estimate dose. Materials and methods A systematic review of the literature was performed on 12 November 2017. All the literature up to this date was included. The PubMed and web of science databases were searched. Studies were screened for inclusion based on defined inclusion and exclusion criteria according to the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews. Results Fifteen studies met the inclusion criteria and were included in our review. Thirteen and two of them examined one and two anatomical areas, respectively. The anatomical areas were: ear (6), paranasal sinuses (4), ankle (3), wrist (2), knee (1), and cervical spine (1). Effective dose was estimated by different methods: (i) RANDO phantom associated with ther - moluminescent dosimeters (6), metal oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor dosimeters (3), and optically stimulated luminescent dosimeters (1).
