One of the test is conformity test collimator beam to X-ray. It aims to make sure angle and distance shift does not occur. This study was done at Radiology Installation of Arifin Achmad Hospital, Riau. This study is quantitative with experimental design by using collimator test tool. Tests were be done three times to each big and small focal spot. Based on Ministry of Health No. 1250 on 2009, deviation tolerance limit value is ≤ 2% FFD for conformity test of collimator beam and being ≤ 3° for the center point conformity test. The results of calculations on the small focal spot for X1 + X2 are respectively 2,25 cm, 2,25 cm, and 2,25 cm with an average value of 2,25 cm. In the calculation results of Y1 + Y2 for small focal spots, the results are respectively 0,45 cm, 0,50 cm and 0,50 cm with an average value of 0,48 cm. Then the calculation results on the large focal spot for X1 + X2 obtained results respectively 2,25 cm, 2,20 cm and 2,15 cm with an average value of 2,20 cm. the results of the calculation of Y1 + Y2 for large focal spots, respectively are 0,45 cm, 0,45 cm, and 0,45 cm with an average value of 0,45 cm. This conformity test got the deviation value exceed the tolerance limit on X axis namely of 2.25 cm in average on small focal spots and 2.20 cm on big focal spots. Conformity test results of the beam alignment entirely showed that center point was in a small circle with &lt; 1.5° value. This means there is no deviation of center point which exceed tolerance limit.</p> Yoga Saputra Marido Bisra Copyright (c) 2021 Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection Research Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-10-06 2021-10-06 1 1 1 7 COMPARISON OF ANATOMICAL INFORMATION OF COLUMNA VERTEBRAE CERVICAL IN 15 TO 20-DEGREE RIGHT POSTERIOR OBLIQUE PROJECTION https://ojs.stikesawalbrospekanbaru.ac.id/index.php/miror/article/view/74 <p>Columna cervical vertebrae are a type of long bone that occurs on the back of the head. One of the radiological examinations most frequently performed in the hospital is the examination of the right posterior oblique projection cervical vertebrae (RPO). However, to see the cervical vertebrae column radiograph that is more optimal for cases of HNP, fractures, fissures, root symdrome. with a variation of the angle of 15 ° and 20 ° cranially. To find out which method is the most informative to display the right posterior oblique (RPO) projection with an angle of 15 ° and 20 ° cranially. <span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">This research is a type of quantitative research with statistical expansion. This research uses phantom. The research was conducted at the STIKes Awal Bros Pekanbaru in August 2020. </span><span style="font-size: 0.875rem;">The vertebral column results were used well, namely at an angle of 15 ° with clearly visible vertebral foramen, clearly visible intervertebral disc, visible C4 - C7, spinous process, clearly visible intervertebral disc.</span></p> Zuzilla T.Mohd Yoshandi Danil Hulmansyah Copyright (c) 2021 Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection Research Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-10-06 2021-10-06 1 1 8 12 EFFICIENCY TEST OF COLLIMATOR SHUTTER AT THE X-RAY TUBE DIAGNOSTIC IN THE RADIOLOGY INSTALLATION OF ARIFIN ACHMAD HOSPITAL, RIAU PROVINCE https://ojs.stikesawalbrospekanbaru.ac.id/index.php/miror/article/view/60 <p>Kolimator merupakan alat pembatas radiasi yang umumnya digunakan pada radiografi, yang terdiri dari dari dua set penutup (shutter) timbal atau lempengan yang saling berhadapan dan bergerak dengan arah berlawanan secara berpasangan. Uji efisiensi bertujuan untuk mengetahui hasil dan mengetahui efisiensi dari celah (shutter) kolimator pada pesawat sinar-x diagnostik. Penelitian ini bersifat kuantitatif dengan desain penelitian eksperimental langsung ke lapangan. Prosedur penelitian dilakukan sesuai dengan MENKES RI No. 1250 Tahun 2009, dengan menguji langsung celah (shutter) kolimator pesawat sinar-x diagnostik di Instalasi RSUD Arifin Achmad Provinsi Riau. Celah (shutter) kolimator pesawat sinar-x tersebut dinyatakan mengalami kebocoran radiasi apabila terdapat penghitaman atau peningkatan densitas pada film radiografi melebihi density base fog yang diukur dengan menggunakan densitometer. Berdasarkan hasil dari penelitian menunjukkan film radiografi mengalami penghitaman di garis transversal (X) dengan nilai densitas rata-rata 1.27 OD(Optical Density) dan sebagian garis longitudinal (Y) dengan nilai densitas rata-rata 0.57 OD. Kemudian density base fog yang didapat setelah diukur 0.20 OD. Hasil uji dinyatakan mengalami kebocoran dan belum dapat dikatakan efisien dibuktikan dengan adanya penghitaman pada film radiografi.</p> <p><strong> </strong></p> Silvi Widya Pangesti Yoki Rahmat Bobi Handoko Copyright (c) 2021 Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection Research Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-10-06 2021-10-06 1 1 13 18 RADIOGRAPHIC EXAMINATION PROCEDURE OF LLD PROJECTION OF ABDOMEN IN CASE OF OBSTRUCTIVE ILEUS IN ER RADIOLOGICAL INSTALLATION ARIFIN ACHMAD HOSPITAL RIAU PROVINCE https://ojs.stikesawalbrospekanbaru.ac.id/index.php/miror/article/view/100 <p>On abdominal examination, obstructive ileus was performed in 3 positions, namely Antero Posterior (AP), half sitting and Left lateral decubitus (LLD). LLD projection aims to show free air in the intraperitoneal cavity in cases of acute abdomen, so that the patient remains on the examination table in the left lateral position for 10 to 20 minutes before abdominal radiography is performed. While the abdominal examination of the LLD projection at the ER Radiology Installation at the Arifin Achmad Hospital, Riau Province, did not use the exposure waiting time, so there was a difference between theory and the field. The purpose of this study was to determine the procedure for radiographic examination of the LLD projection of the abdomen in cases of obstructive ileus at the ER Radiology Installation at Arifin Achmad Hospital, Riau Province, by not using the exposure waiting time, to establish a diagnosis. This research is a descriptive qualitative research with a case study approach through library research, field observations, in-depth interviews, and documentation. The research was conducted at the Radiology Installation of Arifin Achmad Hospital, Riau Province from May-June 2020. The procedure for radiographic examination of the LLD projection of the abdomen in the case of obstructive ileus at the ER Radiology Installation at the Arifin Achmad Hospital, Riau Province by not using the exposure waiting time, was able to establish the diagnosis but the resulting radiographic results, namely air fluid levels were not maximal</p> Ummu Habiba Abdul Zaky Annisa Copyright (c) 2021 Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection Research Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-10-06 2021-10-06 1 1 19 23 THE DIFFERENCES LEVEL OF CONSUMPTION VITAMIN C BEFORE AND DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC IN RADIOLOGY TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS OF STIKES AWAL BROS PEKANBARU https://ojs.stikesawalbrospekanbaru.ac.id/index.php/miror/article/view/85 <p>This study will discuss several things, namely the understanding of vitamin c, the benefits of vitamin c, sources of vitamin c, the relationship with the pandemic and the level of vitamin consumption in students. This type of research is quantitative, using a questionnaire survey approach and the research design is comparative. The research variables in this study were the dependent variable (Radiology Engineering student semester IV Stikes Awal Bros Pekanbaru), independent variable 1 (before the pandemic) and independent variable 2 (during the pandemic). Determination of the number of samples in this study using all students in the fourth semester of STIKes Awal Bros Pekanbaru, totaling 55 people. Data processing is carried out using Google Forms by retrieving data using questionnaires distributed to respondents in the form of positive questions and negative questions so that answers are obtained. The data analysis technique used is the instrument test, the customer satisfaction index and the Friedman test. Based on the results of this study, the researchers concluded that there are still many students of STIKES AWAL BROSS PEKANBARU who have not realized the importance of consuming vitamin C. During a pandemic like this, it is highly recommended to consume vitamin C sufficiently and regularly. There are still many PEKANBARU STIKES AWAL BROSS students who do not consume vitamin C during the current pandemic.</p> Aulia Annisa Febi Ernanda Mauliza Hema Susanti Violita Yani Putri Copyright (c) 2021 Medical Imaging and Radiation Protection Research Journal https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0 2021-10-06 2021-10-06 1 1 24 28
