BACKGROUND Computed tomography (CT) examinations account for a significant portion of individuals' increasing exposure to medical radiation. Automatic exposure control (AEC) was introduced in CT scanners to decrease patient doses while maintaining appropriate image quality. OBJECTIVE To identify areas for AEC optimization and suggest practical optimization methods. METHODS A literature review was conducted to assess current knowledge regarding tube current modulation and AEC in CT from peer… CONTINUE READING
