Abstract
In this study, a high-quality voxel model of a Korean adult male was constructed using Visible Korean Human(VKH) project's serially sectioned anatomical images. The VKH images are transverse color photographs obtained from the serial sectioning of an adult Korean male cadaver (164 cm, 55 kg) at 0.2 mm intervals. A total of 28 organs and tissues were segmented with the color photographic images. The height and weight of the constructed voxel model, VKH-Man, is 164 cm and 59.6 kg, respectively. The voxel resolution of the model is 1.875 mm x 1.875 mm x 2 mm. The developed model was implemented into a Monte Carlo particle transport simulation code, MCNPX, to calculate the organ and tissue doses and, thereby, the effective doses, and the calculated values were compared with the values obtained from other computational models (KTMAN-2, VIP-Man, and ICRP-74).
