BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Recently introduced 320-detector row CT enables whole brain perfusion imaging compared to a limited scanning area in 64-detector row CT. Our aim was to evaluate patient radiation exposure in comprehensive stroke imaging by using multidetector row CT consisting of standard CT of the head, CTA of cerebral and cervical vessels, and CTP. MATERIAL AND METHODS Organ doses were measured by using LiF-TLDs located at several organ sites in an Alderson-Rando phantom. Effective… CONTINUE READING
