Abstract

Urological investigation in children frequently involves high radiation doses; however, the issue of radiation for these investigations receives little attention compared with CT. Objective: to compare the radiation dose from paediatric urological investigations with CT, which is commonly regarded as the more major source of radiation exposure.
