Abstract

This study was performed to estimate examination frequency and collective and per caput effective doses arising from medical X-ray procedures in Sudan, 2010. Information was collected from 30 hospitals performing radiography, computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy and interventional radiology (IR) procedures. The estimated annual number of examinations was 33 million radiographic X-ray procedures (99 %), 0.34 million CT exams per year (14 % paediatrics CT), 0.02 million fluoroscopy and IR procedures. The estimated annual number of examinations was 326 per 1000 people. The estimated annual collective and per caput effective doses from medical X-ray procedures mount 7197 man Sv and 0.18 mSv, respectively. The study offered the first projection of frequency and population dose from medical X-ray examinations in Sudan and provides estimates of the impact of the medical X-ray procedures at the national level.
