State of the art low-dose CT angiography of the body


Alkadhi, H; Schindera, S T (2011). State of the art low-dose CT angiography of the body. European Journal of Radiology, 80(1):36-40.

Abstract

This review summarizes current evidence based on pertinent literature on low-dose computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the body. Various strategies for optimizing CTA protocols with the aim to lower the radiation dose while maintaining the diagnostic accuracy of the examination are summarized. To date, various publications have demonstrated that CTA of the body can be performed at a low radiation dose while providing high quality information. Nevertheless, a number of questions still need to be answered, including the optimal combination of tube voltage and tube current settings, as well as the appropriate protocol parameters in relation to the body physiognomy and the specific body region imaged.
