A field study concerned with human patient exposure in x-ray diagnosis was conducted in Polk County, Fla. The study included physical surveys of 91.5 percent of diagnostic x-ray equipment in the county in use by all categories of practitioners of the healing arts. The methodology used is described in detail and discussed, along with the keeping of patient data records, measuring of acceptance of recommendations, devising an improved means of communicating with the practitioner, limited measuring of radiation exposure reduction to the population, and transferring of findings to data processing cards.
