In recent years, the term “digital transformation” has been used and is being applied in various fields. In the field of medical radiation protection, visualization of invisible radiation using virtual reality technology is thought to lead to a better understanding of radiation protection. We are developing educational materials that simulate and visualize the spread of radiation in various radiological examinations. Although a head-mounted display can be used to create a highly immersive environment for virtual reality, it is not suitable for teaching a large number of students at a time. The use of 3-D and 4-D scattering volume data for radiation protection education is a good way to provide radiation protection education to radiological technologists who do not have expert knowledge of radiation, and to provide them with the opportunity to learn about invisible radiation. It is expected to be effective in improving intuitive understanding of the spread and appropriate methods of care.
