An ionization chamber mm long is the most commonly used dosimeter in computed tomography. It is utilized to evaluate the Computed Tomography Dose Index (CTDI), an important dose descriptor in by: 2. A low-dose-rate X-ray computed tomography (CT) system is useful for reducing absorbed dose for patients.

The CT system with a tube current of mA was developed using a silicon-PIN X-ray diode (Si-PIN-XD). The Si-PIN-XD is a selected high-sensitive Si-PIN photodiode (PD) for detecting X-ray : Eiichi Sato, Yuich Sato, Abulajiang Abudurexiti, Osahiko Hagiwara, Hiroshi Matsukiyo, Akihiro Osawa.

This publication supports an interim solution to the dosimetric problems caused by modern computed tomography (CT) equipment, particular with respect to the wide X ray beam angles increasing seen in clinical practice.

It reviews the development of current CT dose formalisms up to the current International Electrotechnical Commission. The CTDI is a simple, standardized measure of the dose output of a CT scanner that can be used to compare different scan techniques on a single scanner or between scanners.

CTDI is an averaged dose to a standard phantom from a multiple scan examination where the patient table is incremented between by: an automated dosimetry system for computed tomography x-ray scanners using silicon p-i-n diodes.: p/63; radiation hazards during surgery.: p/64; measurement of gammacell drawer transit doese using film dosimetry.: p/65; development of a high range β-dose rate meter.: p/66; safe filling and use of kr aerosol discharge devices.: p/ For optical-CT dosimetry to reach its full potential, in-depth and independent characterization and optimization of the performance of optical-CT scanning system and the optical properties of the dosimeters is required.
