Abstract

This year OPTIMAX settled in Oslo. After the success of previous years, we are proud to present the fourth Ebook. As in previous years, the group was made up of PhD-, MSc- and BSc students as well as tutors from the seven European partner universities. Professional mix was drawn from medical physics/ physics and radiography. OPTIMAX 2017 was partly funded by the partner universities and partly by the participants. Two students from South Africa and two from Brazil were invited by Hanze UAS (Groningen) and ESTeSL (Lisbon) summer school included lectures and group projects in which experimental research was conducted in four teams.

Four research projects were performed with a focus on radiation dose optimization and image quality, namely: Possible dose reduction for pediatric patients for conventional radiology; Can the tube voltage be lowered with the use of direct-conversion flat panel detector system?; Impact of body size and kV in chest radiography; Quantity assessment on Image quality of CBCT images of head phantom with implants of metal and ceramic objects.The last day of OPTIMAX 2017 there was a poster session and a conference, in which the research teams presented their posters and oral presentations.

This book comprises of two sections, the first two chapters concern generic background information about international teamwork during the OPTIMAX summerschool.

The next chapters with theory on which the research projects were built. The second section contains the research papers of the four research projects. Two research papers, Can the tube voltage be lowered with the use of direct-conversion flat-panel detector system? And Impact of body size and kV in chest radiography: Experimental receiver operating characteristic analysis using a Multipurpose Chest Phantom “Lungman” have been accepted for the ECR conference, Vienna, 2018 as oral presentations.
