発明の名称 (英語) Phantom and phantom assembly UPDATE
発明の概要(英語) (US7510325)
A phantom assembly includes a plurality of cylindrical shaped phantoms connectable to each other and/or a plurality of column-shaped phantoms connectable to each other with fitting portions.
An x-ray radiation measuring device for measuring an x-ray radiation from an x-ray CT device is inserted in a through-hole of the phantom.
特許請求の範囲(英語) [claim1]
1. An apparatus for outputting a dose measurement result, comprising: a phantom extending in a direction, the phantom comprising edge portions at both ends, in the direction, of the phantom;
a material for attenuating a radiation into the phantom;a fitting portion formed on at least one of the edge portions;a plurality of through-holes in the material extending in the direction between the edge portions inclusively, said plurality of through-holes extending to the fitting portion;
and
a dose detector in at least one of the through-holes and configured to measure a dose of the radiation through the material and to output the dose measurement result.
[claim2]
2. The apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the phantom comprises a cylindrical shape, and wherein one of the plurality of through-holes is located at a central portion thereof for housing the dose detector.
[claim3]
3. The apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the phantom comprises a sleeve-shape extending in the direction having a hollow portion therein extending in the direction for housing an external phantom.
[claim4]
4. The phantom according to claim 1, wherein the fitting portion fits in a corresponding fitting portion of an external phantom.
[claim5]
5. The phantom according to claim 1, wherein the plurality of through-holes extends continuously between the edge portions inclusively.
[claim6]
6. The phantom according to claim 1, wherein the phantom comprises a ring portion as the fitting portion and a body having a cylindrical circumferential surface, and whereinthe ring portion has a circumferential surface and a fitting space either therein in which the circumferential surface is continuously connected to the cylindrical circumferential surface or between the cylindrical circumferential surface and the circumferential surface.
[claim7]
7. A phantom assembly for outputting a dose measurement result, comprising: a plurality of phantoms, each phantom extending in a direction and comprising edge portions at both ends, in the direction, of the phantom, a material for attenuating a radiation into the phantom, a fitting portion formed on at least one of the edge portions, and a plurality of through-holes in the material extending in the direction between the edge portions inclusively, said plurality of through-holes extending to the fitting portion;
and
a dose detector in at least one of the through-holes and configured to measure a dose of the radiation through the material and to output the dose measurement result, wherein the phantoms are connected with each other to have contact therebetween at the fitting portions thereof.
[claim8]
8. A phantom assembly according to claim 7, further comprising: at least one stick inserted into at least one of the through-holes for embedding the at least one of the through-holes.
[claim9]
9. The phantom assembly according to claim 8, wherein the at least one stick is arranged across two or more phantoms.
[claim10]
10. The phantom assembly according to claim 7, wherein each phantom has a cylindrical shape, and wherein one of the through-holes is located at a central portion thereof for housing the dose detector.
[claim11]
11. A phantom assembly for outputting a dose measurement result, comprising: a plurality of first phantoms, each first phantom extending in a first direction and comprising edge portions at both ends, in the first direction, of the first phantom, a material for attenuating a radiation into the first phantom, a column shape, a first fitting portion on at least one of the edge portions of the first phantom, and a plurality of through-holes in the material extending in the first direction between the edge portions of each first phantom inclusively, wherein the first phantoms are connected with each other at the first fitting portions;
and
a plurality of second phantoms, each second phantom extending in a second direction and comprising edge portions at both ends, in the second direction, of the second phantom, the material for attenuating the radiation into the second phantom, a sleeve shape comprising a hollow portion therein at both ends, in the second direction, of the second phantom, a second fitting portion formed on at least one of the edge portions of the second phantom, and a plurality of through-holes in the material extending in the second direction between the edge portions of each second phantom inclusively, wherein the second phantoms are connected with each other at the second fitting portions and house the first phantoms;
and
a dose detector in at least one of the through-holes and configured to measure a dose of the radiation through the material and to output the dose measurement result.
[claim12]
12. The phantom assembly according to claim 11, wherein the one of the through-holes of each of the first phantoms is located at a central portion thereof for housing the dose detector in the hollow portions.
[claim13]
13. The phantom assembly according to claim 11, further comprising at least one stick for embedding at least one of the through-holes of the first and second phantoms.
[claim14]
14. The phantom assembly according to claim 13, wherein the stick is arranged across two or more of the first phantoms.
[claim15]
15. The phantom assembly according to claim 13, wherein the stick is arranged across two or more of the second phantoms.
