Given the growing awareness of and concern for potential carcinogenic effects of exposure of children to ionizing radiation at CT, optimizing acquisition parameters is crucial to achieve diagnostically acceptable image quality at the lowest possible radiation dose. Among currently available dose reduction techniques, recent technical innovations have allowed the implementation of low tube voltage scans and iterative reconstruction (IR) techniques into daily clinical practice for pediatric CT… CONTINUE READING
