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.
