Adaptive image filters can lower the patient radiation associated with chest and abdominal computed tomography (CT) scans while significantly improving image quality, according to a study by Mass General researchers.

Adaptive image filters lower CT radiation dose


 "Image filters allow us to effectively lower the radiation dose without sacrificing the image clarity," said Sarabjeet Singh, MD, a Mass General researcher who is the lead author of the study, to be presented at the ARRS 2010 Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA.
