Effective and equivalent dose data for panoramic is found in the
Frederiksen NL, Benson BW, Sokolowski TW. Effective dose and risk
assessment from film tomography used for dental implant diagnostics.
Dentomaxillofac Radiol 23:123-127, 1994.
Effective and equivalent dose data for intraoral projection is found in
Cederberg RA, Frederiksen NL, Benson BW, Sokolowski TW. Effect of the
geometry of the intraoral position-indicating device on effective dose.
Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol Endod 84;101-109, 1997.
The findings in both of these papers are also expressed in terms of
risk. I hope these citations are helpful,
