CARE Right – Low kV

Concerns about in the right dose is nowadays not only the fact for radiation dose.

Radiation dose and contrast medium have impact on health. The graph shows that the impact is not the same for every patient group. Dose reduction is very important for all patients but especially for young patient and pediatrics.
Also contrast media dose is a topic that should not be underestimated. Up to 20% of patients presented to the radiology department suffer from renal insufficiency. For example the SOMATOM® Force enables radiologists to routinely perform exams at 70-90 kV, even in adults, substantially reducing the amount of CM needed and thus optimizing the entire clinical procedure. No preparation or medication prior to CT, no after-care and immediate referral to minimal invasive therapy if needed: significant improvement in the clinical results, as well as considerable savings for hospitals.
