CHICAGO — November 30, 2011 — Preliminary results based on a phantom study outlined the potential to decrease iodine and radiation dose on Low kVp scans. Lower kV CT scans mean lower radiation dose while keeping all other factors the same.  From CT physics it is known that lower kV scans can be expected to have enhanced contrast to noise performance.  Because of this and the x-ray...
