16-MDCT angiography in living kidney donors at various tube potentials: impact on image quality and radiation dose.


OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to compare the performance of 16-MDCT angiography at various peak kilovoltage (kVp) settings and the impact of the different settings on image quality and on radiation dose in adult kidney donors. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-two renal donors (32 men, 30 women) who underwent 16-MDCT were divided into three groups… (More)
