Impact of tube current-time and tube voltage reduction in 64-detector-row computed tomography pulmonary angiography for pulmonary embolism in a porcine model.

Abstract

PURPOSE To evaluate the impact of dose reduction in multidetector computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) for detection of pulmonary embolism (PE). MATERIALS AND METHODS After induction of PE in 6 anesthetized pigs, a 64-detector-row CTPA was performed at 3 different dose protocols: A (120 kV/120 mAseff.), B (120 kV/80 mAseff.), and C (80 kV/80… (More)
