Effect of aluminium filtration on dose and image quality in paediatric slot-scanning radiography

Abstract

This paper examines the effect that a 1.8 mm aluminium filter has on paediatric patient dose and image quality for linear slot scanning radiography (LSSR). A dynamic dose prediction model for LSSR accurately predicted the dose reduction effects of added aluminium filtration. A cadaver imaging study was carried out to assess the effects of filtration on… (More)
