Background: Everyone alive in this world is constantly being exposed to ionizing radiation and about 18% exposure is due to man-made source. Recent developments in medical imaging have led to rapid increases in a number of high dose x-ray examinations performed with significant consequences for individual patient doses and for collective dose to the population as a whole. It is therefore important in each country to make regular assessments of the magnitude of these large doses.
