Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess patient doses for pelvic examination being undertaken at selected diagnostic centers in Khartoum state, Sudan. Dose assessed was calculated on 80 patients 46 (57.5%) male, 34 (52.5%) female. ages between 19 to 86 years. The Entrance Surface Dose (ESD) was determined by hropometrical data (age, gender) and exposure parameters (kVp, mAs) utilized for the specific examination. To generate the ESD values Microsoft excel was used. There were variations in the technique factors used in all the centers. The average in all selected hospitals recorded lower ESD values below IAEA recommended diagnostic reference levels (10 mGy) and the average of ESDs of the all hospitals exceeded the UK national reference value (4mGy). The variation in ESD found among diagnostic centers in this study showed that there is need to standardize radiological techniques of pelvis X-ray examination among different diagnostic centers in Khartoum State. This would ensure optimal protection of patient against excessive radiation dose.
