Faculty: Dushyant V. Sahani, M.D.
15659

CT utilization has increased rapidly in the realm of clinical care owing to its availability, speed of scanning, standardized image acquisition protocols and superior quality images that enables diagnosis of a variety of clinical conditions including the life threatening in a time efficient manner.

Recent technologic innovations and software solutions are further enabling dose reduction and improving image quality. High iodine concentration CM (HCCM) are preferred for most MDCT applications especially for CTA procedures and substantial gain in the CM attenuation with the use of HCCM can improve CNR and image quality. In patients at risk for developing CM related renal injury (CIN), its desirable to lower the iodine dose by reducing the CM volume and making appropriate adjustments in the iodine delivery rate with the power injector.

In this Expert Forum, Dr. Dushyant Sahani, Massachusetts General Hospital will share his clinical experiences and protocols for achieving high quality / low dose abdominal CT images.

Following completion of this program, audience members will be able to:

  • Describe the potential benefits of low kV imaging for lowering radiation dose.
