Organ-Based Dose Current Modulation and Thyroid Shields: Techniques of Radiation Dose Reduction for Neck CT
American Journal of Roentgenology, 05/07/2012
Hoang JK et al. – 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.
