Calculation of entrance surface dose of diagnostic X-rays (English version)
Software on Radiological Technology.
Sdec is a program to calculate the entrance surface dose of a patient during diagnostic X-ray irradiation.
Sdec calculates the entrance surface dose according to the calculation method of Japanese Society of Radiological Technology (JSRT), using back-scatter factor and absorbed dose conversion factor obtained based on X-ray spectrum.
Sdec estimates the effective dose based on depth dose data in water calculated simultaneously.
