The lower the better?

This study evaluates whether image quality and diagnostic accuracy for intracranial aneurysm detection can be maintained with low kVp and low contrast material volume cerebral CT angiography.

Key Points:
  • Cerebral CTA is feasible using 100/80 kVp and 30 ml contrast agent.
  • This approach obtains diagnostic image quality with 45–74 % radiation dose reduction.
  • Diagnostic accuracy for intracranial aneurysm detection seems not to be compromised.

Abstract:

Gunshots, emergency rooms, and CTA

In patients with lower extremity gunshot wounds, computed tomography angiography (CTA) could be useful in the emergency room, by providing efficient evaluation and sufficient image quality of gunshot injuries.

Key Points:

  • CT angiography efficiently evaluates lower extremity gunshot wounds.
  • CT angiography provides image quality sufficiently reliable for assessment of gunshot injuries.
  • CT angiography could help limit invasive procedures to select patients.
