Abstract
During 2012 - 2013 a study to evaluate conventional X-ray procedures and patient doses in Klintzi and Novozibkov areas of Bryansk region, Russia, was conducted. X-ray operation parameters included quality assurance of equipment, collection of procedure parameters and clinical practice evaluation. Effective doses were calculated for each selected procedure and dose distributions were established. 75-percentiles of the dose distributions were selected as a preliminary regional diagnostic reference levels (DRL). The DRLs were comparable to the St-Petersburg diagnostic reference levels, except for the skull, abdomen and pelvis areas. High dose spread is explained by differences in radiological practice and unit condition.
