The present invention relates to a voxel-type block phantom for a multifunctional radiation measurement apparatus. A phantom, for adjusting an amount of radiation, has solid pixel blocks, having a radiation measuring device equipped therein and different media and densities from one another, assembled on top of one another so as to be assembled into a 3-dimensional voxel, wherein the phantom is formed by placing a solid block which is appropriate for a density that corresponds to each pixel of the 3-dimensional voxel. An inspector can personally and instantly customize a phantom that is appropriate for a subject to be measured and thus can obtain an accurate measurement value.
