Radiation exposure from medical sources is becoming a major concern in terms of public health. A large portion of the total radiation dose applied for medical purposes derives from the use of computed tomography (CT).
The use of CT is increasing every year, and the amount of radiation exposure per examination is also increasing with the advent of multidetector CT (MDCT).
Compared to single slice CT, MDCT allows extended coverage and multiple acquisitions with a higher tube power required for some specific acquisitions such as cardiac imaging.

This important topic is comprehensively covered from a mostly practical viewpoint in the recent volume from Springer’s Medical Radiology series.
