Increased use of CT Pulmonary angiography in suspected pulmonary embolism (PE) has driven research to minimize radiation dose while maintaining image quality and diagnostic accuracy. Following institutional review board approval, we performed a retrospective comparison study in patients with suspected PE. Patients were scanned using an ultra high pitch dual source technique (pitch = 2.6) using 120 kV (SVCTPA) (n = 54) or 100 kV (RV-CTPA) (n = 52). SV-CTPA images were reconstructed using… CONTINUE READING
