New paper on TOMOGRAPHY (benefits of reduced dose CT scanning)!


Our recent article on the quantitative analysis of reduced and standard dose CT scanning is published and highlighted in the cover of journal TOMOGRAPHY.

In our work, we present a new image quality assessment method for determining whether reducing radiation dose impairs the image quality of computed tomography (CT) in qualitative and quantitative clinical analyses tasks. Our study concludes that low(er)-dose CT scans can be routinely used because of no significant loss in quantitative image information compared with standard-dose CT scans.
