OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine typical radiation dose levels to patients undergoing CT-guided interventional procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 571 patients undergoing CT interventional procedures were included in this retrospective data analysis study. Enrolled patients underwent one of five procedures: cryoablation, aspiration, biopsy, drain, or injection. With each procedure, two scan modes were used, either intermittent (no table increment) or helical mode… CONTINUE READING
