Elastic scattering cross sections are calculated and compared to the data of π± + 28Si and 40Ca at energies 130, 180, and 230 MeV by using the both microscopic optical potentials (OP), the high-energy folding and the local Kisslinger type potentials. In the folding OP, we use the known nuclear density distributions while parameters of the elementary πN-scattering amplitude are fitted to the data with the aim to estimate the inmedium effect on pions scattered on bound nucleons. As to the local modified Kisslinger OP its parameters are known from the earlier studies. The cross sections for both OPs are calculated by solving the Klein-Gordon wave equation, and thus the relativistic and distortion effects on the process are accounted for exactly. A fairly well agreement with experimental data was obtained and the decisive role of a surface region of potentials was established where both OPs occur in close coincidence.
