Abstract

OBJECTIVE. CT dose reduction has become a top priority for many radiology practices as a result of federal and state initiatives and public concern. Implementing this in practice, however, is difficult because of the variability between practices, CT scanners, radiologist preferences, and institutional capacity. CONCLUSION. This article will discuss strategies for successful CT dose reduction instituted in multivendor practices.
