Simulated Dose Reduction for Abdominal CT With Filtered Back Projection Technique: Effect on Liver Lesion Detection and Characterization.

Summary of "Simulated Dose Reduction for Abdominal CT With Filtered Back Projection Technique: Effect on Liver Lesion Detection and Characterization."

Previous studies have shown the possibility to reduce radiation dose in abdominal CT by 25-50% without negatively affecting detection of liver lesions. How radiation dose reduction affects characterization of liver metastases is not as well known. The objective of this study was to investigate how different levels of simulated dose reduction affect the detection and characterization of liver lesions, primarily hypovascular metastases. A secondary objective was to analyze the relationship between the lesion size and contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) and the detection rate.
