Fält, Tobias LU ; Söderberg, Marcus LU ; Hörberg, Lisa LU ; Carlgren, Ingela and Leander, Peter LU (2013) In American Journal of Roentgenology: diagnostic imaging and related sciences 200(2). p.383-388
Abstract
The purpose of this study was to evaluate an abdominal CT protocol in which radiation dose was reduced and IV contrast dose increased for young patients and radiation dose was increased and IV medium dose decreased for elderly patients. The hypothesis was that these adjustments would result in constant image quality and a reduction in age-specific risk.
