Organ Dose and Attributable Cancer Risk in Lung Cancer Screening with Low-Dose CT.

posted by Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R. | Mar 22, 2017
Hatem Alkadhi, M.D., M.P.H., E.B.C.R.

Purpose: Lung cancer screening with CT has been recently recommended for decreasing lung cancer mortality. The radiation dose of CT, however, must be kept as low as reasonably achievable for reducing potential stochastic risks from ionizing radiation. The purpose of this study was to calculate individual patients’ lung doses and … Read more

Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Objective: To evaluate quantitative markers derived from coronary CT angiography (coronary CTA) for the prediction of major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Read more

Low contrast medium-volume third-generation dual-source CT angiography for transcatheter aortic valve replacement planning.

posted by Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD | Mar 12, 2017
Carlo Nicola De Cecco, M.D., PhD

Purpose: To investigate feasibility, image quality and safety of low-tube-voltage, low-contrast-volume comprehensive cardiac and aortoiliac CT angiography (CTA) for planning transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). Read more

Prospective Randomized Comparison of High-pitch CT at 80‚ÄČkVp Under Free Breathing with Standard-pitch CT at 100 kVp Under Breath-Hold for Detection of Pulmonary Embolism.
