Automated tube voltage selection in pediatric non-contrast chest CT.

Modern CT scanners provide automatic dose adjustment systems, which are promising options for reducing radiation dose in pediatric CT scans. Their impact on patient dose, however, has not been investi...

Size-specific dose estimates in chest, abdomen, and pelvis CT examinations of pediatric patients.

Size-specific dose estimates (SSDEs) are the latest focus of interest among medical physicists studying radiation dose to the patient in computed tomography (CT). This study aims to make conversions f...

Effect of arm position, presence of medical devices, and off-centering during acquisition of scout image on automatic tube voltage selection and current modulation in pediatric chest CT.

To evaluate the patients' morphologic factors affecting radiation dose in pediatric chest CT.

Multiphase acquisitions in pediatric abdominal-pelvic CT are a common practice and contribute to unnecessary radiation dose.

Many patients at our pediatric hospital have had a contrast-enhanced CT of the abdomen and pelvis performed by an outside imaging facility before admission. We have noticed that many of these exams ar...

Optimisation of radiation dose and image quality in mobile neonatal chest radiography.

To optimise the radiation dose and image quality for chest radiography in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by increasing the mean beam energy.

Patient- and Task-specific Radiation Dose Optimization for Pediatric Abdominopelvic CT Applications

Radiation dose reduction has been a primary driver of technology development in multi-detector computed tomography (MDCT). The optimization of radiation dose for patient and task specific ...

Pulmonary Nodule Detection: Comparison of an Ultra Low Dose vs Standard Scan.

Lung cancer screening programs are still discussed in Europe today, and one of the concern is radiation due to iterative CT. The aim of this monocentric, prospective, non randomized study ...

CODP Imaging From a Dose Perspective

The noncontrast-enhanced chest computed tomography (CT) is an emerging diagnostical tool in patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). As shown in previous studies and poin...

Validating Low FDG Dose PET/CT Compared to Current Standard of Care Dose PET/CT

The purpose of this study is to assess new low radiation dose techniques for clinical PET/CT scans through intra-individual comparison between a clinical, standard dose scan and a low-dose...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.

Administration of the total dose of radiation (RADIATION DOSAGE) in parts, at timed intervals.

A treatment schedule in which the total dose of radiation is divided into large doses.

The relationship between the dose of administered radiation and the response of the organism or tissue to the radiation.

The amount of radiation energy that is deposited in a unit mass of material, such as tissues of plants or animal. In RADIOTHERAPY, radiation dosage is expressed in gray units (Gy). In RADIOLOGIC HEALTH, the dosage is expressed by the product of absorbed dose (Gy) and quality factor (a function of linear energy transfer), and is called radiation dose equivalent in sievert units (Sv).
