Radiation Levels

by Jessica Bernstein


Submitted : Fall 2013

In this paper I am trying to figure out the average amount of radiation a person receives per lbs/in in a CT urogram. I am collecting the weight, height, and radiation dose received from a CT urogram from six different patients. Using this information I plotted this information on a graph and found the area under the graph using Riemann’s Sum. From this graph I found the average amount of radiation per pound and the maximum and minimum amount of radiation a person can receive per pound/inch.
