High Dose Rate Remote Afterloading system was installed at Wonkwang Universi-ty Hospital in January 1994. In this report, the calibration of a Gammamed 12-i High Dose Rate Remote Afterloading system and the radiation survey around the facility after design and construct a shieding room are discussed. The radiation survey of the facility indicates that the use of ordinary concrete shielding of existing room will provide adequate shielding.
