Abstract

This study examined the characteristics of the dental X-ray fluoroscopic equipment, 'DreamRay 60F', which was recently developed in Korea. The output linearity, output reproducibility, half-value layer (HVL), leakage radiation and scattered radiation were measured using an ionisation chamber. The surface dose equivalent rate and estimated dose equivalent of the operator were also calculated. The output linearity was 0.0015-0.0175 and the coefficient of variation for the output reproducibility was 0.0013-0.0074. The experimental HVL was 2.1 mm Al, and the leakage dose rate at 100 cm from the X-ray focus ranged from 2.70 to 19.66 μGy h -1 depending on the direction. The scattered radiation doses differed significantly (1.7-16.8 times) depending on the distance and direction. If an operator is exposed for 10 min per procedure, 5 procedures a day at 5 days a week, he/she sitting at a 90° direction will receive an annual dose equivalent of 13.0 mSv (at 30 cm) and 63.7 mSv (at 50 cm) in the trunk and face surface, respectively.
