Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Coronary CT angiography is a rapidly growing technique that offers distinct advantages over traditional imaging techniques. However, because of rapid growth of this technique, radiation dose safety has been placed under the spotlight. There are several main determinants of total radiation dose, and these are outlined in this review. Integration of these dose-saving techniques will go a long way in maintaining diagnostic image quality and improving patient safety.
