New RSNA Dose Exhibit: Ultralow Dose CT for the Evaluation of Pediatric Pectus Excavatum

Ultralow Dose CT for the Evaluation of Pediatric Pectus Excavatum: Evaluation of Radiation Dose, image Quality and Diagnostic Performance (from RSNA 2021)

The ultralow dose protocol yields a substantially lower radiation burden to patients. The results presented in this exhibit indicate that even a moderate increase in image noise did not seem to significantly reduce image quality.
