Dose to radiosensitive organs during routine chest CT: effects of tube current modulation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The aims of this study were to estimate the dose to radiosensitive organs (glandular breast and lung) in patients of various sizes undergoing routine chest CT examinations with and without tube current modulation; to quantify the effect of tube current modulation on organ dose; and to investigate the relation between patient size and organ dose to… (More)
