Radiation is energy, and it is widely used in a variety of fields, especially in industry and medical science. In hospital, ionizing radiation like X-ray is an extensive exam that has been used to help physicians to have a view into the body, without having to make a medical application. Computed tomography scan uses ionizing radiation, and it is a nearly perfect diagnostic unit that allows the physician to see the picture of the human body. Computed tomography scan technology has progressed over the years, and it is an increasingly powerful and effective unit in the diagnostic radiology. Exposure to ionizing radiation is known to increase the risk of cancer. The aim of this study was to assess the radiation exposure received during computed tomography in a sample representative of the current state of practice in adult patients.
