The introduction of new interventional procedures led to introduce new regulations concerning patient safety from radiation dose. To cope with recent regulations, automatic software was born for dose management and visualization. This software get dose and geometry information of procedures through DICOM RDSR, generated by radiological equipment. After that, the software elaborates data, introducing the correction factors and geometry relation, obtaining a 3D visualization of the patient with color code indication for irradiated areas of the body. The correction factors used for this project, allow to convertion of the Reference Air Kerma to skin absorbed dose. The final result, peak skin dose, is necessary to assess possible skin injuries and inform the interested clinician. In particular, this project has been developed in University Hospital of Innsbruck, allowing to use the patient database and the following devices: Philips FD 20, Siemens Axiom Artis Zee and Siemens Fluorospot S1. The software has been executed in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with GNU GCC compiler, dcmtk library and ApachWeb Server.
