A low dose Computed Tomography (CT) scan provides an image of the inside of a patient’s body with minimal radiation. This reduces risks for the patient by limiting overall radiation exposure in association with the medical imaging study. Developments in CT technology by Siemens have resulted in considerable improvements in low dose equipment, making higher doses of radiation increasingly unnecessary.
In this type of medical imaging study, the patient lies on a table while the CT Scanner takes a series of images, known as slices, of the inside of the body. The slices can be reassembled in a computer program to create a three dimensional image to reveal interesting structures, abnormal growths, and other features.
Patients who receive a low dose scan have a much lower amount of radiation exposure. The equipment can also use multiple detectors, allowing several slices to be captured at once. This reduces the amount of time the patient has to spend in the machine and also lowers the overall dose. Technicians can carefully compute the dosage settings on the equipment to tailor them to the patient, producing a low dose CT scan that will provide exceptional resolution with the least risks for the patient.
