Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the characteristics of the X-ray film profile and X-ray films that have the optimal characteristics. This study was conducted on four X-ray films with different brands that are used in 13 radiology department hospital/health center/Clinics in Semarang, called A film, B film, C film and D film. Characteristic curve of each X-ray film was obtained by sensitometry method and measurement results are used to determine the value of basic fog, contrast film (average gradient), latitude and film speed. The results of the study, the characteristics profile of films that have fog basic values lower or equal 0.22 (≤ 0.22) are A, B and D films except C film. Contrast highest to lowest owned B, A, C and D films. Range from the highest to low of film latitude is D film, C film , A film and B film. Speed films produced relatively similar for all X-ray film. Optimum characteristic profile films shown in the B film. The use of X-ray film in a shooting radiograph should pay attention to the type of object being examined to produce optimal quality radiographs and understand each characteristic profile of X-ray films are used.

Abstract

This research aims to analyze the skills certification in Radiation Protection Officer (PPR) and Basic CT Scan for graduates in relation with the absorption of graduates employment. The type of research is descriptive qualitative study approach. Subjects were graduates from Diploma program of TRR Semarang and Purwokerto, specialist doctors and radiographers as users of graduates. Data taken from observation and check list/survey of alumni, interviews and focus group discussions. The results of this research are skills certification of Radiation Protection Officer (PPR) provides benefits in terms of radiation protection skills and provide more value when applying on the job. In addition, the ability in the field of radiation protection will ensure radiation safety for patients, radiation workers and community/environment. Basic CT Scan skills certification provides benefits in operating aircraft proficiency CT scans, particularly on the basis of the examination, as add value of graduates and make graduates quickly adjust to working conditions.

Abstract

Background: Radiograph of knee joint with Kellgren and Lawrence classification system is the gold standard for assessing knee osteoarthritis. However, these grades are still obstacles. It is sometimes not appropriate to assess the progress of osteoarthritis and very long time to see the results of such progress. Osteoarthritis diagnosis and classification have been relying on qualitative visual interpretation by a radiologist. Probably difficult to determine whether there OA in the knee or not. Image quantification of digital radiography is done by measuring the joint space width and tibio femoral angle of the knee joint using the ImageJ software, with body weight variance as one factor that could affect it. Aims: This research aims to get information of body weight effect on the measurement of the joint space width and tibio femoral angle of knee joint in OA detection. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study. Subjects were digital images of the knee joint anteroposterior (AP) projection using Computed Radiography (CR) from 21 respondents with specific criteria. Image is then quantified using ImageJ software to measure the joint space width and tibio femoral angle. Print out of examination visually evaluated by one radiologist to confirm the diagnosis of OA of the knee joint. Results: The value of the right knee joint space width lateral and medial (3.81 ± 1.18 and 2.42 ± 0.77), while the left lateral and medial (3.49 ± 1.11 and 2.69 ± 0.83). Tibio femoral angle range 168.44 to 178.39 with the average tibiofemoral angle right knee 175.18 ± 2.04 and 173.80 ± 2.44 left knee. Body weight has a significant correlation to the tibiofemoral angle of knee joint (p value < 0,03). Conclusion: The joint space width values that taken from digital quantificationcan be baseline data of respondents, especially for those respondents who had grade 2 or indicated osteoarthritis, to be observed or compared in the next examination.The tibio femoral angle can be addition information in relation with knee pain to detect osteoarthritis.

Abstract

Background: Media in the educational perspective is a strategic instrument in determining the success of the teaching and learning process. On radiographic examination, each patient is always at risk of exposure to ionizing radiation that is not necessary. Students need to learn whether the exposure factors which they use on patients is still below of the diagnostic reference level. This article purpose to get an overview of the radiation dose estimation using CALDose_X version 5.0 software as a laboratory-learning instrument in Radiological Laboratory Department of Radio diagnostic and Radiotherapy Technique, Poltekkes Kemenkes Semarang.Methods: This article contains a description of using this software. The sample type is purposive sampling, which consist of seven types of radiographic examinations belong to The Head of Bapeten Regulation Number 8 of 2011. Entrance surface air kerma (ESAK) value from each exposure factors compared with Bapeten dose limit.Results: The result showed this software able to calculate the incident air kerma of radiographic examination based on the output parameters of an X-ray tube. All of ESAK values confirm with the Bapeten dose limit.Conclusion: The CALDose_X version 5.0 can be proposed as an instructional media to teach students in estimating absorbed dose to organs and tissues of the human body, the effective dose as well as the patient’s cancer risk for radiographic examinations.
