AJR:194, April 2010 This article suggests 10 steps that radiologists and radiologic technologists, with the assistance of their medical physicist, can take to obtain good quality CT images while properly managing radiation dose for children undergoing CT. The first six steps ideally should be completed before performing any CT on a pediatric patient. The final four steps address the unique consideration that should be given for each scanned patient.
