State-of-the-Art Dual Source CT Techniques for Decreasing Radiation Dose and Sedation Requirements in Infants and Young Children

Authors: R. Gottumukkala, A. Tabari, M. Kalra, A. Otrakji, M. Gee

The authors review the technical aspects of multi-energy CT and rapid CT, and discuss applications for which dual-energy CT can either reduce radiation dose or improve image quality, how low-kV imaging can reduce radiation dose and improve CNR, and rapid CT techniques that permit awake, free-breathing exams in pediatric patients and still reduce motion artifacts.
