Abstract

Cardiac CT has evolved to a robust and accurate imaging modality in the cardiac diagnostic armamentarium. However, technical developments had been accompanied with an overall increase in radiation exposure. In the last years, several technical developments and algorithms aimed at the reduction of radiation exposure in cardiac CT. The most relevant dose reduction strategies will be highlighted in this article including appropriate indications for cardiac CT, different ECG synchronization techniques, reduction of tube voltage, and high-pitch CT studies.
