Keynote Highlights

Dr. Steven D. Wolff, Director of Carnegie Hill Radiology presented many cases including an example of a patient with an abdominal aortic aneurysm comparing scans with Toshiba's Aquilion PRIME (DLP = 364 mGy-cm sc) to the previous system (DLP = 1506 mGy-cm) concluding "You can see the images are of similar quality but the dose was more than 75% less because of our using iterative reconstruction. This has advantages in other areas as well such as coronary CTA where we can achieve low doses, citing another case example, a patient with atypical chest pain where it was possible to rule out coronary artery disease, with the dose from the CTA was only 1.1 mSv."
