Radiation dose of cardiac computed tomography - what has been achieved and what needs to be done


Alkadhi, H; Leschka, S (2011). Radiation dose of cardiac computed tomography - what has been achieved and what needs to be done. European Radiology, 21(3):505-509.

Abstract

This review highlights the recently introduced techniques by manufacturers and various research workers to reduce radiation dose in coronary CT. It discusses in detail the development of ECG-based tube current modulation, the application of low tube voltage protocols and prospective ECG-gating. It also briefly discusses two further methods of dose reduction, namely minimisation of the x-y anatomical coverage and adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
