Course description

Expiry date: July 1, 2023

The formation of CT images involves many steps: Data acquisition is the first of these steps. The term data acquisition refers to the collection of the measurements of x-ray transmission from the patient. After these x-rays have passed through the patient, they land onto special electronic detectors that measure the attenuation values. Enough of these data must be recorded to meet the requirements of the reconstruction process being used. In this course, acquisition modes and parameters, dosimetric indices and dose reference level will be discussed. This course is accredited by the ASRT for 1 Category A CE Credit.
