Azadeh Hojreh, Michael Weber, Peter Homolka Abstract Objective: To evaluate the efficacy of staff training on radiation doses applied in pediatric CT scans. Methods: Pediatric patient doses from five CT scanners before (1426 scans) and after staff training (2566 scans) were compared statistically. Examinations included cranial CT (CCT), thoracic, abdomen –pelvis, and trunk scans. Dose […]
