Comparison of the function and performance of CT AEC systems

Emily Field



Presentations arise from the results of an MSc dissertation. Radiation dose in terms of DLP was audited over a 6-8 week period at locations across SE Wales, including Toshiba, GE and Siemens scanners. Techniques were compared and conclusions drawn, linking to dose results. Performance of the AEC systems of the same scanners was compared using an elliptical Perspex test object. Conclusions are drawn regarding the merits of each system and where appropriate the need for optimisation exists.
