Abstract

Adjustments of the standard helical CT protocols for adults can result in reduced radiation dose when imaging children. It is the radiologist's responsibility to critically evaluate the CT techniques used at their institution. Adjustments to CT protocols should be made to choose the appropriate mA and pitch when imaging children.
