Various conventional and modern fluoroscope units had been examined with an anthropomorphic phantom to determine the applied average organ doses. The aim of our investigation was to compare these doses with those normally delivered to the patients during a conventional X-ray examination of the thorax. As was to be expected, the doses resulting from conventional fluoroscopic units are much higher than the doses from modern units. As shown by means of our measurements, the efforts of advanced technology permit to reduce the dose rate up to a factor of 30. I.e., the doses resulting from modern fluoroscopic units are even smaller than the doses received during a conventional thoracic X-ray examination, what means a great improvement for this examination technic.
