AVALOS PINA, Lourdes Yatzil et al. Quantification of secondary radiation with dosimeters of optically stimulated luminescence in the thyroid zone during the exposition to digital orthopantomography. Rev. Odont. Mex [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.4, pp.197-205. ISSN 1870-199X.

In dentistry, the use of dosimeters is not frequently to evaluate the patient radiation; however, through dosimetry, we can maintain a better control of the amount of radiation emitted to patients, radiation doses and the tissue radiosensitivity, to prevent at any time the posible harmful effects of ionizing radiation (deterministic effects), however the stochastic effects can be developed and presented with any doce of radiation. In this study we will focus on orthopantomographies that are diagnostic auxiliaries prior to dental treatment.

Keywords : Measurement; radiation; dosimetry; luminescence; thyroid; orthopantomography.
