  • Radioprotection in Chest CT: An Approach with Bismuth Breast Shield

    • 07/05/2017

    The main goal of this study was to assess the viability of the bismuth breast shield in chest computed tomography (CT ) examinations. Dose measurements on a phantom (Cardinal Health 76 415) with an ionisation chamber were performed with and without bismuth breast protection in different configurations using the routine chest CT protocol. Image quality control was performed using a phantom (Gammex...

  • Scatter Radiation Exposure During Mobile X-Ray Examinations

    • 16/02/2017

    The main goal of this research was to quantify scatter radiation exposure from mobile x-ray examinations. The simulation consisted of reproducing the technical conditions for the chest anteroposterior (AP) examination in supine and semi-supine positions as well as for the abdomen tangential projection, using a full body anthropomorphic phantom and an x-ray detector. For distances above 1m, the national...
