High Atomic Number Contrast Media Offer Potential for Radiation Dose Reduction in Contrast- Enhanced Computed Tomography

posted by | May 31, 2016

Objectives: Spectral optimization of x-ray computed tomography (CT) has led to substantial radiation dose reduction in contrast-enhanced CT studies using standard iodinated contrast media. The purpose of this study was to analyze the potential for further dose reduction using high-atomic-number elements such as hafnium and tungsten. Read more
