Provides in-depth information and guidance on CT technique and radiation dose reductionSecond edition with new chapters on up-to-date strategies and technologiesIncludes clinical examples, protocols, and access to an online image galleryWritten by leading physicists and radiologistsComputed tomography (CT) is a powerful technique providing precise and confident diagnoses. Close to 65 million CT examinations are performed each year in the United States alone, an astonishing number achieved with an annual double digit growth rate over the past 30 years. The burgeoning use of CT has resulted in an exponential increase in collective radiation dose to the population. Despite investigations supporting the use of lower radiation doses, surveys highlight the lack of proper understanding of CT parameters that affect radiation dose. Dynamic advances in CT technology also make it important to explain the latest dose-saving strategies in an easy-to-comprehend manner relevant to routine clinical practice.
