Abstract
A thoracic phantom, with embedded fragments of uranium (U) and iron (Fe) of different sizes, was imaged with digital radiography, standard-dose CT and low-dose CT and the detectable size of the fragments was recorded. U and Fe fragments were detected in diameters down to 100 mu m and 300 mu m, respectively with the standard-dose CT and digital radiography. The size limit using the low-dose CT was 300-400 mu m for U fragments and 500-700 mu m for Fe fragments.
