TITLE:

Radiation dose measurements in MDCT protocols

 

AUTHORS:

 

Mahadevappa Mahesh, MS, PhD

 

PURPOSE:

 

The main objective is to understand the importance of radiation dose in MDCT protocols and to examine different methods on how CT doses are measured. The talk will discuss the current project wherein we are planning to examine closely the dose modulation techniques currently available on Siemens MDCT scanners and compare the dose reduction with image quality
