Low-dose computed tomography

Background

Despite recent advances in recent years to reduce the radiation dose to patients from CT scanning, the current patient dose used in clinical practice is still very high. Considering that CT scans are recommended very casually by physicians and followups of many treatments require repeated CT scans, patients could potentially receive an unacceptably high radiation dose. Although CT image reconstruction routines have already allowed lowering the patient dose, it is important to continue decreasing the CT radiation dose to a patients.

Technology

Dr. Avraham Dilmanian, Professor of Research in the Departments of Radiation Oncology and Neurology at Stony Brook University invented a CT technology that produces less radiation dose in the patients body compared to the existing CT scanners without decreasing the image quality.

Advantages

Sustantially reduces the dose to the patient for the same image contrast and image noise

Application

CT Scanning
