Optimising Radiation Dose of CT Pulmonary Angiogram for Imaging Pulmonary Embolism and Alternative Acute Respiratory Diseases

Hashi, Ahmed

Description

Abstract CT pulmonary angiogram (CTPA) is utilised to diagnose pulmonary embolus in various clinical settings. CT imaging has considerable advantages over other imaging modalities. Whilst considering its widespread application and advantages, it tends to have high radiation exposure. Additionally, there are high rates of suboptimal and non-diagnostic examinations that result in unnecessary radiation dose. Therefore appropriate radiation dose reduction techniques are required without...[Show more]
