 Abstract
In this study, it was an investigation of the degree of awareness and consciousness of the radiology technicians about radiation protection working in the computed tomography room in Busan when the pediatric underwent brain CT scan. It was sorted by university hospital, general hospital and hospital and compared the scores of awareness and consciousness. As a result of awareness, university hospital had the highest point of 42.29 followed by general hospital and hospital of 38.43 and 34.06 respectively. On the other hand, the average score of consciousness was the highest in hospital of 29.19 followed by general hospital and university hospital of 24.68 and 21.37 respectively. It is considered to need assistance to cultivate an awareness of the radiation through refresher training and conferences, etc in order to increase the awareness of the general hospitals and hospitals for CT workers. In addition, it is also expected to pay for efforts to increase the consciousness of CT workers in university hospitals seeking the optimization of radiation protection and dose reduction of radiation exposure for the pediatric.
