Abstract

The use of radiation reduction techniques in Computed Tomography (CT) is critical in reducing patient dose, and for establishing new standards in radiation monitoring and protection during imaging procedures. CT is used to obtain high quality image sets that contain more useful information than standard x-ray images for diagnostic purposes; however, it utilizes higher radiation dose. With the advancement of newer technologies and techniques, many CT procedures can be performed to achieve high-quality images while using less radiation, and in some cases, improve diagnostic quality as well. Assessing new dose reduction techniques for specific procedures in CT is useful for improving patient health and safety. As more research is performed concerning how radiation accumulated during procedures is slowly being reduced to more acceptable levels, CT may be considered for use in more diverse patient populations. This could greatly change public perception of imaging procedures involving the use of radiation, and could highlight the importance of researching and developing new reduction techniques.
