Patient Size-Specific Analysis of Dose Indexes From CT Lung Cancer Screening

posted by | Nov 23, 2017

The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently approved the use of low-dose CT for lung cancer screening and described volumetric CT dose index (CTDIvol) requirements. These were based on the National Lung Screening Trial, which used only fixed-tube-current techniques. The aim of this study was to evaluate … Read more

Iterative reconstruction has been made available for practical use in the last few years. Iterative reconstruction techniques (IR) can increase image quality with equal dose or potentially get similar image quality as in filtered back-projection (FBP) with less dose. Read more
