Significant dose reduction for pediatric digital subtraction angiography without impairing image quality: preclinical study in a piglet model.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to validate the hypothesis that image quality of digital subtraction angiography (DSA) in pediatrics is not impaired when using a low-dose acquisition protocol. MATERIALS AND METHODS Three piglets corresponding to common pediatric population sizes were used. DSA was performed in the aorta and renal, hepatic, and… (More)
