PURPOSE To quantitate the effectiveness of low-dose computed tomography (CT) in the identification of pulmonary nodules while controlling for anatomic nodule characteristics and to establish what factors lead to reduced diagnostic sensitivity at low-dose CT. MATERIALS AND METHODS Each of six participating radiologist independently rated 200 image panels by using a four-point confidence scale. Conventional images were obtained at 200 mAs; low-dose images were obtained at 20 mAs. To fully… CONTINUE READING
