Adoption of the effective dose as a standard measure of dose allows comparability across the spectrum of medical and non-medical exposures. “The effective dose is, by definition, an estimate of the uniform, whole-body equivalent dose that would produce the same level of risk for adverse effects that results from the non-uniform partial body irradiation. gov/cdrh/ct/rqu. html). Although it has many limitations, the effective dose is often used to compare the dose from a CT examination, a fluoroscopic examination, and the background radiation one experiences in a year.
