Reduced contrast media whitepaper image 4:3

There are many reasons you may want to reduce the amount of iodinated contrast media used for CT scans while maintaining image quality.

Adjusting CT protocols may help. Low kV contrast CT scanning is feasible in clinical routine and, depending on user preferences, it can be used directly to reduce either radiation or iodine dose. This whitepaper highlights how you can use low kV scan protocols to both optimize contrast enhancement and potentially reduce the volume of contrast media required.
