Abstract

Introduction Radiation exposure from computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) is of particular concern and several techniques have been introduced to lower the radiation dose. In this study, we aimed to compare the diagnostic image quality and estimated radiation dose of the three CTCA acquisition protocols in a recently introduced second generation dual-source computed tomography.
