Dr. Rogalla discusses the recent technical advances in Multi-Detector CT as it pertains to potential dose reduction. Improvements in dose efficiency are reviewed with regards to photon counting detectors, x-ray tubes and reconstruction techniques, detector efficiency, x-ray beam filters, better active shielding, electronics (DAS), and optimization of image filters.
After participating in this activity, learners should be able to:
- Acquire knowledge related to the risk benefit ratio of dose quality and risk of injury.
- Understand techniques that can be use to decrease dose.
