Worldwide, medical exposures contribute with 20% to the average annual per caput effective dose (0.62 mSv). Our statistical evaluation consists of assessing the frequency and types of procedures underwent by 1134 patients. The most frequent investigation was noticed at lumbar level for 16–40 years group and the highest exposure number at patients over 40 years old. The percentages of justified practices were approximately double than non-justified medical exposures, being correlated with clinical and radiological diagnosis.
