This study aims to reduce backscattered radiation inside an X-ray room during X-ray imaging. A number of anti-scatter grids with different geometrical designs have been fabricated from iron steel and aluminium independently because of their relatively better abilities to reduce backscattered radiation compared to other materials, to elucidate the backscattered radiation reduction capabilities of fabricated grids utilising different X-ray machines and several X-ray energies. Crossed iron steel grid exhibited the best backscattered radiation reduction of up to 49.24% under low energy of radiation exposure (50 kVp).
