Background: Nowadays, radiological findings help to diagnose emergency in patients with trauma, and the radiologic demands of these patients are very high. The aim of this study was to evaluate the amount of received radiation by patients with trauma within 48 hours of admission in the hospital.Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 200 patients with trauma who were referred to the emergency department of Alzahra hospital in Isfahan city, Iran, during 2017-2018 were followed up by type and amount of radiation. For each patient, data including radiographs and computed tomography (CT) scans were collected during the first 48 hours. Radiation rate due to radiography and CT scan was recorded in mSv.Findings: The mean total requested x-rays and CT scans in patients were 5.96 ± 1.93 and 1.05 ± 0.50, respectively. The highest mean of radiation due to radiology was in total spine, and the highest mean of radiation due to CT scan was in thoracic and spine CT. The mean of total radiation due to radiology and CT scan was 0.57 ± 0.34 and 4.90 ± 2.28 mSv, respectively. The mean total radiation dose in the patients was 5.38 ± 2.62 mSv. The mean of radiation in men was significantly higher than in women (P < 0.001).Conclusion: Due to the numerous side effects of inappropriate imaging procedures, necessary imaging can reduce the cost of patient and hospitalization, as well as physical complications.
