Two self-interacting computer programs have been developed. The first program which consists of fifteen topics aprises the users with broad spectrum of radiation risks to the unborn during pregnancy and the status of various views in this regard. Another program estimates the dose to uterus in sixteen radiological examinations depending upon the radiographic parameters used. The dose to uterus and hence to the fetus calculated by computer program in different radiographic views have been found to be in agreement with that reported in NRPB-R200 survey report. The two programs combined provide a better understanding of the rather confusing situation regarding dilemma about termination of pregnancy following inadvertent radiation-exposure, apprehension about radiation-effect in the minds of prescribing doctor and patients, dose estimation and advice to pregnant workers and like.
