This timely article describes the use of a size metric that involved the physical dimensions of the patient (anteroposterior [AP], lateral, AP+lateral, or effective diameter), in combination with scanner output (CTDIvol), to determine size-specific dose estimates (SSDE) from CT scanning. Patient dimension can be determined using physical or electronic tools. Physical devices, such as the calipers that were frequently used in radiography before the routine use of phototiming, may be used to measure patient thickness in the AP or lateral directions. Alternatively, electronic measurement tools can be used to measure physical dimensions from either the CT localizer radiograph or an axial CT image. The conversion factors used tocalculate SSDE from CTDIvol reported in AAPM Report 204 were derived from experimental and Monte Carlo data and normalized to patient size in terms of water- or tissue-equivalent materials. 

ALL TESTS CAN BE TAKEN ONLINE

No matter which type of Pediatric and Adult CT doses course you purchase, (complete course, download test, fax or online) you can take your test through our on-line testing site.

  1. Define the CTDIvol used to normalize the conversion factors.
  2. Explain how to determine the lateral dimension in the absence of a CT radiograph.
  3. Describe the conversion factors based on the use of the 32 cm diameter PMMA phantom for CTDIvol.
  4. Explain how to convert patient age to effective diameter of the patient.
  5. Show the language suggested by pediatric radiologists when reporting the CTDIvol in the radiology report
