Collection and analysis of patient and image data for calibration of a voxelphantombased Monte Carlo code and for the modelling of important structures
1997 (English)Report (Other academic)
The contribution of the Medical Physics Departments at Linköping University (LKP) and The Royal Marsden NHS Trust (RMH) to the joint project ‘Predictivity and Optimisation in Medical Radiation Protection’ is in modelling of the chest and lumbar spine radiographic examinations. This involves:
- the development of quantitative imaging requirements;
- an investigation of the effect of imaging technique on image quality and patientdose, and
- an optimisation of system design.
One of the objectives for this first reporting period (0-12 months) was to collect a set of chest and lumbar spine radiographs of patients for subsequent analysis in order to establish patient doses and important features in the images. The set of radiographs and the outcome of the image feature analysis will during this project’s second year be used to calibrate our Monte Carlo computational model of the conventional chest and lumbar spine screen-film X-ray imaging systems.
