A study on the radiation exposure of simple abdomen Radiation in Radiography
Yeo, Jin-Dong ; Kim, Mi-Sook ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology, volume 1, issue 3, 2007, Pages 5~10
This study was performed to measure about exposure dose during simple abdmon radiation radiography. The exposure dose was measured by PDD, surface dose, respectively. The result was as followed: 1. When tube voltage were increased with 60-85kv, surface dose were increased. When FFD(focus film distance) at the 50-150cm and mAs were increased, surface dose were decreased. 2. The percentage depth dose(PDD) were appeared 50% below depth dose at 4cm with 60-75kv, and 6cm depth with 80-85kv, 5% below depth dose at 12cm with 60kv, and depth with 65-85kv. 3. The percentage forward scatter increased from 10% to 11.78% at the 60-85kv. The back scatter dose were increase from 25% to 37% at the 60-85kv. The side scatter dose were affected to heel effect.

Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology, volume 1, issue 3, 2007, Pages 11~16
In this study, the potential of a newly developed simulation toolkit, GATE for the simulation of electronic portal imaging devices (EPID) in radiation therapy was evaluated by characterizing the performance of the metal plate/phosphor screen detector for EPID. We compared the performances of the GATE simulator against MCNP4B code and experimental data obtained with the EPID system in order to validate its use for radiation therapy.
Designing and Performance Testings of Microdot Detectors

Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology, volume 1, issue 3, 2007, Pages 17~21
We describe recent observations and measurements realized with microdot (MDOT) detectors having 50 mm, 100 mm, and 200 mm pitches for 3.7 keV X-rays. A gas gain of
has been measured with 50 mm pitch MDOT at potential difference much lower than those usually obtained with MSGCs. The defocusing effect caused by the existence of the readout lines passing below the insulator layer has been investigated from the drift voltage dependence of the count rate variation and the electric field simulation for all the detectors. Results concerning the spatial resolutions are presented with collimated X-ray beams.
A Study on Exposure to radiation of the patient who visited an emergency room at a University Hospital

Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology, volume 1, issue 3, 2007, Pages 23~34
To find how much radiation was exposed the patients who visit emergency room, a measurement study was made for radiation amount toward 200 patients selected randomly among visitors to an emergency room in a university hospital from March 16 to 31st, 2006. The results are as follows ; 1. Among the subjects 50 person(25.0%) were transferred from other hospitals, 24 persons(8.3) come after traffic accident, 50 persons for other accident and 76 persons for general medical care. 2. The average frequency of X-ray taking was calculated as 6.4 time per person among transferred patients, 14.5 times per person among patients with traffic accident and 2.6 times per person among general medical care. 3. The radiation exposure amount by kind of X-ray showed 28.9mGyfor general X-ray diagnosis, 84.2mGy for CT scanning and 1.02mGy for other special radiation study. 4. Average radiation exposure amount was calculated as 24.6mGy by transferred patients, 55.2mGy by patients with traffic accident, 17.1mGy by patients with other accidents and 17.0mGy by general patients. 5. Through the comparison of radiation exposure amount among to subject with maximum allowance threshold by International Commission on X-ray Radium Protection, transferred patients exceeded 6 times than allowance in whole body except extremities and joints, blood forming organ, reproductive system, vitreous body of eye, bone, thyroid gland, skin and etc, Patient suffered from traffic accidents were exposed 10 times more than allowance. In conclusion, the radiation exposure amount during X-rat diagnosis re too much and exceeded allowance standard by International Commission on X-ray Radium Protection. So further study and preventive measure to decrease radiation exposure by patients who visit emergency room.
A Study Clinical Analysis of Cervical Spine disease patient's
Kim, Kee-Bog ;
Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology, volume 1, issue 3, 2007, Pages 35~40
The purpose of this study was to investigate in S city of Chung-Nam using direction radiation Cervical spine among patient enforcing AP view, lateral view, total 113 subjects(40-year-old low)by target examine and got following as: 1) Distribution of age 14~40 years old 57 men (50.4%), woman 56subjects(49.6%)be, and age group 30~40year old 80subjects(70.8 %), 20~29year old 27subjects(23.9%). 2) It appeared most by 81subjects(71.7%) that can not know cause though traffic accident, misstep, cause ignorantness were investigated to revealed by the chronic 87subjects(77%) appeared by thing which statistical significance is with occurrence cause. 3) 20 Among whole 113subjects 20~29years old 27 subjects(23.9%), 30~40years old 80 subjects(70.8%) manifestationacute form of a disease, the chronic all high distributionsee. 4) This investigator left shoulder region pain among 39 subjects whole 113 subjects (left to direction that could know that is each main pain in 34.5 %), cervical vertebral portion upside 31 subjects(27.4%), both shoulder region pain 20 subjects(17.7%), and becomes left side scoliosis 62 subjects(54.9%)by the most frequencies appear. 5) Appeared antespondylolisthesis by all curve 48 subjects(42.5 %) in curve direction and at Systolic blood pressure from 160mmHg to all 19 subjects (before total 69 subjects (61.0 %) at 16.8 %), Diastolic blood pressures curve 31 subjects(27.4 %) by 100 mmHg appear.
