With increasing clinical use of cardiac CT imaging it is important that all health care providers referring for or administering such examinations are familiar with the concepts and values of radiation dosimetry in CT as well as with the basic principles of radiation protection. There are important technical differences pertinent to radiation dose between the CT scanner types that are currently being used for imaging of the heart and coronary arteries. As a result of these differences, the… CONTINUE READING
