Help-why are our doses so high? - An exercise in CT dose optimisation

Maria Kazantzi, Maria Lewis

KCARE, King's College Hospital, London and ImPACT, St George's Hospital, London


An initial review of doses on two scanners in a radiology department suggested that on one CT scanner doses were significantly higher than on the other. We were requested to investigate the reasons for this. A dose audit was performed for two common clinical scan protocols. Explanations for the differences in dose on the two scanners will be presented, together with initial advice on the dose optimisation strategy.
