Organ-Based Dose Current Modulation and Thyroid Shields: Techniques of Radiation Dose Reduction for Neck CT

American Journal of Roentgenology, 05/07/2012

Both organ–based dose modulation and thyroid shields significantly reduce the thyroid organ dose without degradation of subjective image quality compared with automatic tube current modulation. Organ–based dose modulation has the additional benefit of dose reduction to the ocular lens.
