OBJECTIVE The purpose of our prospective study was to assess the image quality with respect to the radiation dose incurred by multidetector CT (MDCT) in patients with suspected bronchiectasis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS. Image clusters, composed of nine images, using MDCT (120 kVp, a 2.5-mm collimation, a pitch of 6, and 2.5-mm reconstruction intervals) were obtained at each of two levels-the azygous arch and the right inferior pulmonary vein-at 170, 100, 70, 40, 20, and 10 mA. Independently, two… CONTINUE READING
