total mas 4159
and total dlp 2156

i read to get the total radiation in msv
i need the conversion rate which i read on the internet it is for head and for an adult person
0.0021
so 2156 * 0.0021= 4.5 msv which it is fine for me

but how i khnow they used a conversion rate of
0.0021 and did not used 0.0053 for example?
which if they used a conversion rate of 0.0053 like it is in the neck scan and for baby scan
it is a total radiation of 11 msv

please help me that Unnecessary scan i got 2 years ago destroyed my life
im 26 years old

Do you have any ill effects after that scan?  2000 DLP for a head CT scan on an adult w/wo contrast doesn't seem bad....
