Dose and image quality implications of using dual/multi energy computed tomography in paediatric imaging

Abstract

The aim of this project is to increase the use of dual/multi energy computed tomography scanning (CT) in paediatrics to improve diagnostic outcomes and make best use of available and potentially under utilised resources. The project will assess the current use of dual/multi energy CT scanning in paediatric patients across a range of scanner types. A series pf phantoms studies will also be conducted to provide an inter-comparison between different scanner types and dual energy techniques.
