III.A.8. Assume that a scan of one CT slice produces an average dose of 3 rad to the tissue in the slice. If 10 contiguous slices are scanned with the same factors:
a. The average dose to the tissue within the slice will increase by at least a factor of 10.
b. The integral dose (imparted energy) will increase by at least a factor of 10.
c. The risk to the patient will be increased.
d. Scattered radiation contributes to the dose.
