The minimization and control of radiation exposure usually starts with the determination of the total expected dose. Manual determination of an accurate value can require an extensive, error-prone amount of data manipulation. By computerizing the model for this determination the individual task and total dose values can be identified much more rapidly and accurately than by manual methods. Also, high-dose operations can be easily evaluated for ways to reduce exposure. The microcomputer also allows instantaneous updating of estimates as changes are made both in the planning stage and in the performance of the job.
