COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF THE SPECTRAL SENSITIVITY OF MAMMOGRAPHY FILMS USED IN ENUGU METROPOLIS

ABSTRACTFilm sensitometry has become a valuable tool of determining the sensitometric parameters of films and film-screen performance. But in our locality, there seems to be no accurate data of sensitometric parameters of mammography films. This study compared the sensitometric parameters such as relative speed, maximum density, base plus fog density and average gradient (film contrast) of Begood and Agfa (HDR-C) mammography films.An experimental research design was adopted and two films Bego...

EVALUATION OF PATIENT AWARENESS TO THE SIGNIFICANCE OF X-RAY EXPOSURE INDICATOR LIGHT (A CASE STUDY OF THE TERTIARY HOSPITAL IN ENUGU)

ABSTRACTRadiological workers appreciate the concept of radiological protection of patient in theory due to its benefits of avoiding radiation induced genetic and somatic effects. However, they tend to neglect the practical aspect of the topic thus, leading to large number of patient entering into the radiological diagnostic room without been called, thereby interrupting the radiological diagnostic process. This work is therefore geared towards evaluating patient’s awareness to the significa...
