ImPACT have CTDI100 measurements free in air, and in standard Perspex head and body dosimetry phantoms for most of CT scanners in use today. These measurements are useful for calculation of CTDIw, CTDIvol, DLP and other dose parameters.
Most of the data was measured by ImPACT on a consistent set of CTDI phantoms, using the same ionisation chamber, and a consistent technique, so the consistency of the results is good. Some of the measurements, particularly for older equipment, result from the ImPACT CT scanner dose survey. The data is available for download as a zipped 'Excel 97 & 5/95' format spreadsheet.
A range of other resources are available as a result of the dose survey - follow the link above to find them.

ImPACT has done work on converting from CTDI100 to CTDIFDA. Measurements were carried out on eight scanners, representing a range of beam shaping filters, scan geometries and operating kVs from 110 to 130kV. The summary of results is as follows.
Note that a correction factor has been included in the conversion factor to take account of the different media that the doses are quoted in (dose in air for CTDI100 and dose to Perspex for CTDIFDA).
