Calculation of Effective Dose For X-ray and CT Examinations Using the VIP-Man Model

Ratios of effective dose per unit energy imparted (E/e) for several common radiographic examinations and CT machines are calculated using the VIP-Man tomographic model and the EGS Monte Carlo code. Conversion coefficients and charts were published and made available for use in patient risk calculations.
