Study of Application of Mobile DR Detector for Hospital Acquired Infection


  • Department of Radiological Science, Gimcheon University, Gimcheon City, Gyung- buk, 740-704, Korea, Republic of


Objectives: Generally, hospitals have a special condition easily causing environment pollution, cross infection, contact infection and droplet infection the patients, for it is the place for hospitalized patients who are strongly susceptible to disease and there is a high possibility of that diagnostic tools, hygienic materials in a hospital is infected by disease causing germs. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This study obtained a chest image with using medical radial rays by the thickness of disposable plastic packing paper, surgical instrument sterilization wraps for the prevention of hospital acquired infection from repetitive use of portable digital x radiation generator detector and compared and evaluated the definition of the images. Findings: According to qualitative analysis result analyzing the images by each types of disposable plastic, disposable plastic with air layer, sterilization sheet, 0.2 mm and 10 mm cotton materials, there was no statistical difference in the group, which did not use an infection prevention protecting product, in terms of contrast, occlusion detection rate and clarity of the boundary. Improvements/Applications: The study result suggests that it needs to actively use the materials for certain conditions to obtain optimal medical images and prevent hospital acquired image and to work on developing various protecting products for infection management.
