Abstract The average glandular dose to glandular tissue m mammography is generally assumed to be a function of beam quality (HVL), x-ray tube target material, tube voltage, breast thickness, breast composition and, to a lesser extent, x-ray tube voltage waveform. The average glandular dose is generally determined from published tables with knowledge of the above function. Tables for a high frequency x-ray generator are not yet published. In our study, the lookup tables for the average glandular dose were made at 28 kV (high frequency x-ray generator), employing a breast simulating tissue (0-100% adipose tissue, 0-100% glandular tissue) phantom for an Mo target - Mo filter source assembly. We tried to estimate breast composition from x-ray mammograms by digital image processing techniques, also using the simulating tissue phantom. Then the system that automatically calculates the average glandular dose from digitized clinical x-ray mammograms was built. It is considered that this system can contribute to objective evaluation of the average glandular dose.
Abstract Alternative 乳房X線撮影法において乳腺組織に対する平均放射線吸収線量,すなわち平均乳腺線量は放射線のリスクの最も有用な測定法であり,現在,乳房に対する線量の評価に用いられている指標である。一般に,平均乳腺線量は線質(HVL),X線管球ターゲット材料,管電圧,圧迫乳房厚さ,乳房構成および(ある程度)X線管電圧波形の関数であるとされている。平均乳腺線量は,上記の関数についての情報を備えた表が公表されており,一般にその表を使って決定されている。近年,インバータ式といわれる高周波X線発生装置が普及してきた。しかし,その装置用の表は,まだ公表されていない。我々の研究では,乳房組織をシュミレートするファントム(0~100%乳腺組織,0~100%脂肪組織)を使用して,28kVでMoターゲット―Moフィルタソースアセンブリーを備えた高周波X線発生装置のために,平均乳腺線量用のルックアップテーブルを作成した。同様に,乳房組織をシュミレートするファントムを使用して,乳房X線写真から,ディジタル・イメージプロセシング技術によって,乳房構成の評価を試みた。そして,ディジタイズされた臨床乳房X線写真から,平均乳腺線量を自動的に計算するシステムを構築した。サンプル数が少ないため断定はできないが,日本女性は,基準構成(50%の脂肪および50%の乳腺組織)と比較すると,脂肪が少ない傾向を分析結果は示唆していた。また,平均乳腺吸収線量の限度は,明確に規定されていないが,American College of Radiology(ACR)は4 mGyなどを推奨している。また日本では,3 mGyが推奨されているが,我々の撮影システムはこれらを十分満足していた。このように本システムは,平均乳腺線量の客観的な評価に寄与するとともに,DR(digital radiography)などに応用すると,すなわちルックアップテーブルをDRのコンピュータに保存しておけば,撮影後すぐに乳房構成および平均乳腺線量を算出できる可能性をもつ。

Abstract We have developed a new technique for measuring the modulation transfer function (MTF) of a cathode ray tube (CRT) monitor. The "nominal" MTF was measured by displaying a line image of a width of one pixel on the CRT monitor using the pattern generator. We also measured the effective pixel width. In order to obtain the "actual" MTF, the nominal MTF was divided by the sinc function which is the Fourier transform of the effective pixel width. The results indicate that the corrected MTF converges to the constant value as the effective pixel width is narrower. Thus, the actual MTFs were determined and compared in the horizontal direction for two CRT monitors.

Title Alternative Extended-cycle processによる乳房撮影用増感紙/フィルムシステムの画質改善

Abstract Extended-cycle process is the term used for a processor in which the processing time has been prolonged usually to approximate 210 seconds. It has been known that the extended-cycle process of some single-emulsion films as used for mammography may enhance film contrast and increase film speed. So the speed was increased in lower speed and higher resolution system than conventional systems by means of using the extended-cycle process in this paper. We investigated how much the resolution of the system was kept. A single screen-single emulsion combination, Konica M-100/CM-H was employed as a low speed and high resolution system. This film after exposure was processed in the different combinations of developing temperatures, 30, 32 and 34℃, and processing time of 210 seconds. On the other hand, Konica M-200/CM-H was employed as a high speed system. This film was processed in the standard-cycle processing (34℃, 90 seconds). Those systems were compared on contrast, speed, screen-film blur and noise by a characteristic curve, MTF (modulation transfer function) and WS (wiener spectrum). Furthermore, the RMI 165 phantom was used to evaluate visibility of mammographic details of these systems. As a result, in the extended-cycle process at the developing temperatures of 32 or 34°C and processing time of 210 seconds for M-100/CM-H, it was possible to increase the speed as much as the higher speed system, M-200/CM-H. Then the contrast, the MTF and the visibility were also improved as compared to the higher speed system. Furthermore patient dose could be reduced at the developing temperature of 34℃ and processing time of 210 seconds in M-100/CM-H.
Abstract Alternative 通常,extended-cycle processは処理時間が約210秒に延ばされた現像機のために使われる用語である。乳房撮影に使われるような片面乳剤フィルムにおけるextended-cycle processは,フィルムコントラストを増し,感度をあげることが良く知られている。そこで,本論文ではextended-cycle processにより低感度,高解像度システムの感度を上げ,どの程度解像度が維持されるかを調べた。片面増感紙/片面フィルムの組合わせであるKonica M-100/CM-Hを低感度,高解像度システムとして用いた。露光後のフィルムは現像温度30,32, 34度,処理時間210秒の異なる組合わせで現像処理した。一方,高感度システムとしてKonica M-200/CM-Hを用い,このフィルムは標準現像(34℃,90秒)された。感度,増感紙/フイルムのぼけ,雑音に関して,特性曲線,MTF(modulation transfer function), WS(wiener spectrum)によってこれらのシステムを比較した。さらにこれらのシステムにおける乳房写真の細部視覚評価のためにRM165ファントムを使用した。その結果,M-100/CM-Hに対するextended-cycle process現像温度32, 34℃,処理時間210秒のextended-cycle processにおいて,高感度システムM-200/CM-Hと同等の感度を上げることが可能であった。そのとき,コントラスト,MTF,視覚的検出能も高感度システムより向上した。さらに,現像温度34℃,処理時間210秒では,被曝線量の低減が可能であった。

Abstract The influence for developing temperature and processing time within film processing conditions was investigated using four mammographic films, Konica New CM, Fuji UM-MA HC, Kodak Min-R M and Kodak EB/RA (for rapid system). And Fuji UR-2, a double-emulsion film, was used as a control. Those sensitometric strips exposed by a sensitometer were processed in the different combinations of developing temperatures ranging from 28 to 36℃, processing times from 45 to 210 sec. Average gradient, relative speed and base plus fog obtained from the measured film characteristic curves were evaluated for the different developing temperatures and times. Fuji UR-2 was scarcely affected and mammographic films were greatly affected in the different combinations without an increase in base plus fog except EB/RA. In New CM, UM-MA HC and Min-R M, the average gradients and the relative speeds increased as the developing temperature was higher and the developing time was longer, but the increases were limit on the combination of 36℃ and 210 sec in New CM and UM-MA HC. In EB/RA, the average gradients were almost constant and the relative speeds increased slightly like the double-emulsion film. These results suggested that it would be possible to contribute to dose reduction and advancement of contrast in New CM, UM-MA HC and Min-R M by changing these processing parameters.
Abstract Alternative フィルム処理条件において,現像温度と処理時間に対する影響を4種類のマンモグラフィ用フィルムKonica New CM, Fuji UM-MA HC,Kodak Min-R M,迅速処理用Kodak EB/RAについて調べた。そして,比較基準用として両面乳剤フィルムFuji UR-2を用いた。感光計で露光したフィルムを現像温度28~36℃,処理時間45~210秒で処理した。特性曲線から得られたフィルム特性(平均階調度,相対感度,カブリ濃度)を異なる現像温度,現像時間に対して評価した。UR-2はほとんど影響を受けず,マンモグラフィ用フィルムは,カブリ濃度が上昇することなく,現像条件の影響を大きく受けた。New CM, UM-MA HC,Min-R Mは現像温度の上昇,処理時間の延長に伴い,平均階調度と相対感度は増加した。しかし,New CM, UM-MA HCの36℃,210秒で増加は限度に達した。EB/RAの平均階調度は一定で,相対感度は両面乳剤フイルムと同 様にわずかな増加であった。これらの結果は,New CM, UM-MA HC, Min-R Mにおいて,処理条件を変化させることにより,被曝低減,コントラスト向上に貢献できる可能性を示唆していた。

Abstract Utilization of radiation in medical treatment is increasing more and more ; consequently, It becomes more important to estimate exposure dose correctly. Altough there are many reports about exposue dose for patients, most of them merely describe the results of the measurements by parts of the body. Exposure dose differs with equipment, instruments, screen-firm system, contition of radiography, and so on. This paper describes the relation between skin dose and contitions of radiography, and also shows the result of measurement of "TPR" which needs to know the absorbed dose of each organ.

Abstract 癌の有力な治療法の1つである放射線治療はシステム全体の許容誤差が±5%と、正確な治療が要求されている。正確な線量を正確な場所に照射されなければならない。そのためには日頃から照射装置のQuality Control が重要である。Beam平坦度の測定はその中でも、重要な項目で1/6月の測定頻度が勧告されている。今回、市販のBeam Flatness Analyzer (7000型 THEBES) を使用する機会を得たので、その基礎的性能であるChamber 相互の感度のちがい、測定値の再現性、識別可能な最小線量について実験を行った。各項目とも誤差が非常に少なく、日常の使用に際してそのデータは十分信頼できるものであることがわかった。
Abstract Alternative Lrradiation, which is one of the effective therapies to Cancer, is required to be accurate within ±5% of the tolerable error of the total system. An accurate dose has to be irradiated accurately at a target volume. For that Quality Control of the irradiation equipment is cotinually important. As the measurement of Beam Flatness is an important item, it is obligated to be measured once a week. In this paper as we have an opportunity to use a Beam Flatness Analyzer sold on a corporation of medical instrument, we experiment about the difference of sensitivity of mutual Chamber which is its basic property, the reproducibility of the measured score, and the minimum value of measuralbe dose. We find that the difference in every item is so small that its data is very reliable in a daily use.

Abstract A new stepwedge has been developed for bootstrap sensitometry, which is used for determining the characteristic curve of radiographic screen/film systems. Since each step of the stepwedge is separated by the lead septum, flare generated under one step will not penetrate the region of another step. The metal of the stepwedge can be changed with various materials. Characteristic curves obtained with new stepwedge bootstrap (NSB) and conventional stepwedge bootstrap (CSB) techniques were compared with those obtained for screen/film systems with inverse sqare sensitometry. The inverse square method was used as the reference standard for accuracy. The NSB method provided characteristic curves that agreed well with those obtained using the inverse square method. The slope of the curve in the CSB method was lower than that in the inverse square or NBS method, because of scatter radiation. The shape of the characteristic curve from the NSB method did not vary with the materials of step metals (aluminum and copper). The cumulative error involved when using the bootstrap method is also discussed.

Abstract マンモグラフィ専用装置を使用して,距離法で低エネルギー領域のX線におけるマンモグラフィ用増感紙/フィルムシステムの特性曲線を得るためには,空気滅弱の影響を考慮する必要がある。その影響について,実効エネルギーから空気減弱分を補正,照射線量測定による補正,Bednarek法を応用した新距離法の3種類の方法を使って検討した。さらに,一般撮影装置でも,マンモ用システムに対して距離法で特性曲線を作成し,エネルギ ーの変化による影響についても検討した。その結果,3方法の特性曲線およびグラディエント曲線は,新距離法が高濃度域でわずかにずれるもののほぼ一致した。新距離法に対する平均階調度,最大階調度の最大誤差は,2.7%,0.2%であり,一般撮影用装置の距離法と3方法との間では,一般撮影用装置の距離法に対して最大誤差は2.7%,1.5%であった。以上のことから,エネルギーの変化による特性曲線への影響はほとんどなく,低エネルギー領域での特性曲線は空気特配の補正を行うことのみで得られると考えられる。
Abstract Alternative It is necessary to take air attenuation into account when we use inverse square sensitometry to obtain characteristic curve for the mammographic screen-film system at low x-ray energies as used with the dedicated unit. Three kinds of the inverse square sensitometry approach of correcting by air attenuation obtained from effective energy, of correcting by exposure dosimetry and of using modified the technique of Bednarek were employed to investigated the influence of x-ray energy in the characteristic curves for the mammographic screen-film system. In addition, the inverse square sensitometry with the general radiographic unit was employed and the influence of x-ray high energy in the characteristic curves was also investigated for the same screeri-film system. Though characteristic curves and gradient curves of the new inverse square sensitometry were a little lower than the others in high-density region, the curves with three kinds of methods almost coincided. Maximum relative errors of average gradient and maximum gradient for modified the technique of Bednarek were found to be 2.7% and 0.2% among the others respectively. Moreover, maximum relative errors of gradient and maximum gradient for the inverse square sensitometry with the general radiographic unit were 2.7% and 1.5% among three kinds of methods with the dedicated unit respectively. It was considered that the characteristic curves for the mammographic screen-film system were little influenced by x-ray energy and could be obtained only by correcting air attenuation from above results.

Abstract 放射線治療の成否は厳密に設定されたTarget Volumeに如何に正確な線量を照射するかによって決まる。治療術式の過程において、最も大きな誤差を生む要因は照射機器である。誤差の少ない治療を目指す第一歩は機器を正確に作動させることであり、日常からの保守点検および整備が必要である。今回、岡山大学附属病院で1976年から1991年までに使用されたリニアックについて、その故障状況を集計し、部位別故障件数、管球の寿命、稼動率などを分析検討した。その結果、故障件数では設置され稼動を始めた1976年、装置の老朽化が進んだ1990、1991年に多かった。部位別集計では加速部に圧倒的に多く、次いで照射口、高圧部の順であった。稼動率は設置年および1987年を除いてはいずれも96%以上とよい結果であった。この結果は全国に稼動している同型の装置の保守点検に役立つものと考える。
Abstract Alternative The Accuracy of radiation dose exposed the rigidly selected target volume is one of significant factors that have an influence upon the efficiency of treatment in the radiotherapy techniques. Therefore, it is necessary to daily maintain and check irradiation equipment for the radiotherapy. For the radiotherapy, the electron linear accelerator, Toshiba LMR-15A, had worked from 1976 to 1991 in Okayama University Hospital. On this study, all records regarding the operating condition were analyzed concerning parts of trouble, life of a tube and operating efficiency for these sixteen years. In a high frequency of trouble, an accelerating structure ranked first, followed by a collimator and a high voltage generator. The operating efficiency was 95% or greater. This report should be helpful to maintain and check a same model in other hosptals.

Abstract 胸部専用の新しい増感紙/フィルムシステムについて物理的画質特性を測定し、従来のシステムと比較を行った。測定した新システムは、日本コダックのインサイトシステムからHC/IT-1、富士メディカルシステムのADシステムからHG-M/UR-1、コニカのEXシステムからXG-S/ES-C である。従来のシステムとして富士メディカルシステムのHR-4/Super HR-S を使用した。その結果、新システムは22~73%感度は高く、特性曲線においては低濃度部を持ち上げ、最大コントラストは高濃度側にシフトしていた。空間周波数2cycles/mmで相対鮮鋭度を比較すると、新システムが10~30%程度の低下となっていた。ノイズは、濃度1.0で新システムが35~46%の減少となった。以上より、新システムは、縦隔部の濃度を上げ、粒状性の改善を重視した設計となっていることが分かった。
Abstract Alternative The new three screen-film systems, Kodack INSIGHT system HC/IT-1, Fuji AD system HG-M/UR-1, and Konica EX system XG-S/ES-C for chest radiography were evaluated. In addition, the conventional system Fuji HR-4/Super HR-S was measured for comparison with new systems. The evaluation method is as follows. The image quality characteristics, speed, contrast, resolution and granularity were measured. The sensitivity and contrast were determined by measuring the MTF (modulation transfer function) and NCTF (normalized contrast transfer function). The granularity was estimated by measuring the Wiener spectrum. The speed of the new systems were improved by 22% to 73%. The dinsities at the maximum gradient value were shifted to high density (2.0-2.7). However, they had 10% to 30% less resolution. The other hand, the granularities were improved by 21% to 37% at 1.0 density. These results suggested that the emphasis of new systems was put on improving the image quality of mediastinum region, maintaining performance of the conventional system.

Abstract 1995年4月に初めての本学のシラバス(講義要覧)が発行され、学生に配布された。本報は約1年後の1996年2月の試験期間中にシラバスに対する学生の意見を問うために行われたアンケート調査の結果をまとめたものである。回答を寄せた学生は435人で、在籍学生の89.0%であった。よく利用したとする学生は18.2%、数回利用したとする学生は67.6%であった。学生の使用目的はテストの準備や履修科目の決定のためであった。以上のことから、現在のシラバスは学生が日常的により活用するためにはさらに教師が改善、工夫する必要があると思われた。
Abstract Alternative The first syllabus of the School was published and distributed to all of the students in April,1995. Ten months later during the term examination, an opportunity arouse to question the sudents about their idears for the syllubus. A survery of all of the students was carried out and 435 students (89.0%) responded to it. They generally utilized it well, especially to decide which subjects they will take, to find out about the textbooks that will be used, and how to prepare for the examination. However it was found not to be sufficient for their daily use. Teachers therefore must make a greater effort in giving information about their lecture.

Abstract シラバスは、その内容も含めて、まだ教官にも、学生にもなじみのない言葉である。著者らは、1994年、初めてのシラバス(講義要覧)を刊行した。このシラバスの中では、1人もしくは数人の教官によって、1教科・1学期分の講義の概要が各1ページの中に記載され、その枠組みは、基本的事項以外に、抗議の目標、授業計画、授業計画、教科書、参考書、授業の進め方、評価の方法、教官のメッセージから成るものであった。このシラバス作成に参加した専任教官45人及び非常勤教官107人、計153人に対し、調査表によってシラバス作成に関する意見を求めた結果、117人(77.0%)の教官が解答を寄せた。その結果は次のようなものであった。1.今回の作成計画以前にシラバスについて認識があった者は44.5%であった。しかし、シラバスの今後の発行に関しては94.9%の者が賛成であった。今回の枠組みについてはほとんどの者が肯定的であった。2.学生による授業評価については、約半数(52.7%)が賛成であるが、時期尚早とする者が41.8%いた。
Abstract Alternative The term 'syllabus' and its concept are not familiar to university faculty members and students in Japan. Authors who belonged to School of Health Sciences Okayama University, published the first syllabus in 1994. In this syllabus, an outline of each course for a semester was shown by one or a few faculty members. The framework consisted of the mark of the subject, schedule, textbook, reference book, how to teach, how to grade and message to students, besides basic information. Forty-five full-time faculty members and 107 part-time faculty members were asked about their ideas for the syllabus through a questionnaire survey by mail and 119 faculty members (78.3%) responded to it. Only fifty-three faculty members (44.5%) had known the term 'syllabus' before the time when they started to talk about it or were asked to write it. But after their presenting syllabi, 104 faculty members (87.4%) agreeded to continue publishing and they were affirmative to framework as it was proposed this time.

Abstract Exposure dose has been indicated by surface dose or transit dose, but they could not indicate dose distributions inside the body. Modulex as the radiation therapy planning system was used for dose distributions at standard diagnostic X-ray energy. X-ray is low energy X-ray at standard diagnostic radiography, so alterations of the energy and the scattering dose distribution by absorbers are quite different from those at high energy X-rays. Mix-DP was put to the homogeneous tissue use, then Bone equivalent phantom or Lung equivalent phanton was put to the inhomogeneous tissue use. Density correction factors for inhomogeneous phantoms were gotten by the calculation of the water equivalent thickness. In Bone the inhomogeneous correction depended strongly on the bone thickness. In Lung it was in need of one density correction factor and the scattering correction method for the decrease of the back scattering. The calculated dose distributions by Modulex agreed with measured data when each correction was carried out, and it was indicated that those data apply to inclinical situations.

Abstract 胃X線検査の被験者を増やし、検査を円滑に行う上で造影剤である硫酸バリウム懸濁液の飲みにくさが障害の一つとなっている。これを改善する目的で、懸濁液に市販の粉末清涼飲料を混入したところ、64.2%の人が通常のものよりも飲みやすいと答えた。臨床上も造影剤の付着が悪くなったり、胃の蠕動を促進する等の問題は生じず、有用であると考えられた。
Abstract Alternative Barium sulfate suspensions are disliked by many people. This is one of the obstacles to increase persons who consult doctors and to have medical examinations smoothly. We mixed soft drinks into the suspensions to improve this problem. As a result, they were popular among 64.2% people, there were not any clinical troubles that the suspensions did not stick to the mucous membrane of the stomach well, the peristalsis of the sotmach were promoted, and so on. These results suggest that the contrast media containing soft drinks is useful for the X-ray examinations of the stomach.

Abstract Tomography is clinically useful in the diagnosis of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome. The TMJ is formed by the condyle and the glenoid fossa, and there exists TMJ space between them. Image processing was employed in the present study, and the reference points of the condyle and the glenoid fossa were determined from the tomogram. Subsequently, the TMJ space was measured automatically in the image analysis. The TMJs of 98 patients were examined practically and the characteristics of each result were studied. There is a possibility of discriminating an abnormal condylar position from a normal one by making use of the TMJ space and the distance between two reference points.

Abstract 医療の高度化に伴い,近年では長時間のⅩ線透視を行うInterventional Radiology(IVR)手技が頻繁に行われ,副作用としての難治性放射線皮膚障害例の報告が増加している。確定的影響である放射線皮膚障害はしきい値を超えると発症し,線量に依存して障害の程度が重篤となるため,患者被曝線量の測定が重要である。しかし,IVRでは照射部位が多彩で,焦点-皮膚間距離が不安定なため,その測定方法は確立されていない。本研究では,近年IVR等低エネルギー線量測定用フイルムとして開発されたCAFCHROMIC XR TYPE T について性能評価を行い,患者皮膚入射面の被曝線量測定への応用の可能性について検討した。その結果,線量特性,線質特性,ネット値の安定性に良好な特性を示し,臨床に使用可能であったので報告する。
Abstract Alternative In recent years, interventional radiology (IVR) using which uses prolomged fluoroscopy has been performed frequently in clinical radiology. Also, reports of radiation skin injuries whose symptoms occur after IVR has been also increasing. These symptoms will become worse if the radiation induced skin injuries are caused by doses which are above the designated threshold, and the grade of injuries are dependent on dose. Therefore, it is important that patient skin dose is measured correctly. But when perfoming IVR, irradiation is complex pricedure, and there is a measurement error with an unfixed source-to-skin distance. So. in this paper, characteristics of GAFCHROMIC XR TYPE T (which are film for low energy X-rays) are performed. Then, they are decided whether the application to the skin surface incidence dose measurement whoud be posible. From these results usefull data can be obtainned; for exanmpe film characteristics, energy factors and stability of sensivility.

Abstract 幼小児を含めた若年者の股関節X線撮影検査においては鉛板などで生殖腺を防護して行うのが通常である。男性の場合は生殖腺は体外に露出しているので,それを鉛板で包むようにすればある程度目的は達成される。しかし,女性の場合,生殖腺は骨盤腔内に存在するため,卵巣及び子宮を防護でき診断目的領域にかからないように鉛板を成形し,腹壁上に置いて撮影する。X斬写真上ではグリッドで散乱線を除去しているため,鉛板の陰影がくっきりと撮影され,生殖腺は完全に防護されているように見える。しかし,体内では散乱線によるかなりの被曝があるものと考えられる。そこで今回,鉛板下の散乱線量を鉛板幅及び電圧を変化させ,ファントム内各深さの散乱線量を測定した。その結果,鉛板下の散乱線量が相当量認められ,その量は深さ3~4cmでピークを形成した。鉛板幅による変化は幅が狭いほど線量は大きくなり,電圧による変化は60kVと80kVを比べると80kVの方が多くなった。これを鉛板なしの場合と比較すると,ファントム内意さが増すにしたがい増大した。したがって,臨床において鉛板がずれて再撮影をすることのないよう細心の注意が必要であると考えられた。
Abstract Alternative Usually in a hip-joint radiographic examination for the youth including children, the gonads should be well protected with an appropriate lead shield etc. Since the male gonads are in the outside of the body, if covered with a lead shield, the shield can protect them. However, in the case of the female, since the gonads of exist in a pelvic cavity, the lead shield is cut to a specific pattern so that it can protect the ovaries and the womb, and it is set on the abdomen during the radiographic exposure. Since the scattered radiation on an X-ray film can be removed with the grid, the image of a lead shield is obtained clearly, and the gonads seem to be protected completely. The shield can not protect the gonads of the female from the scattered radiation, though it protects them almost completely from the primary X-rays beam. Therefore, the gonads have radioactive contamination from scattered radiation. Then, in order to estimate the amount of scattered radiation under the lead shield, the dose under the shield was measured by using a phantom in this research, changing lead shield width, the tube-voltage, and the monitoring depth of a phantom. As a results, the dose under the lead shield was observed considerably and showed the peak at the depth of 3 or 4cm. Therefore, it was thought that a careful caution was required for obviating lead shield in clinical.
