Purpose:    Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA Purpose : The amount of CT-derived radiation received by patients  has  become a  growing concern.  With  automatic tube  current modulation ,the tube current is automatically adjusted to individual anatomic var[...]

Methods and materials: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA Forty patients who underwent both unenhanced  and  contrast-enhanced  abdomen-pelvic CT scan.  All examinations  were performed using an automatic tube  potential selection tool on a 16MDCT scanner   (Brilliant ,&[...]

Results: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA An increase in patient dose was noted in all CT examinations with IV and  oral  contrast compared to unenhanced CT  examinations. Average dose inc[...]

Conclusion: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE AR-SA There was a relationship between patient weight and dose.We did not consider it in our study .   Correlation between iodine concentration and patient dose did not consider.   All CT examinations were  acquire  after holding breath&nb[...]
