Tin Filtration in CT – Peter Kutschera
27 July @ 10:15 - 10:45
Tin Filtration in CT – Since the introduction of the Siemens Somatom Force at Dandenong Hospital Monash Health in January 2017, we have explored the use of Tin Filtration in some of the more common CT examinations. My talk will explain the basic theory behind Tin Filtration, and how we used it to significantly lower dose by up to 95%, or to doses similar to X-ray. Some of the results on dose reduction have the potential to change imaging pathways which favour CT.
