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.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through joint sponsorship of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and Medlantis.
SIR is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. SIR designates this internet activity, enduring material for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1.5 Credits™ commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
