Poster Information
Abstract: The applications of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) are increasing over time, originally for maxillofacial imaging and expanding to petrous, temporal bones and sinuses. More recently the use of CBCT technology for the assessment of scaphoid fractures has received increasing attention in the literature [1]. There is contradictory literature regarding whether CBCT represents a dose saving when compared to MSCT for scaphoid imaging [2, 3]. Therefore, patient dose was estimated for a newly installed CBCT system (Carestream CS 9600) to compare against Multi Slice Computed Tomography (MSCT). For this study Effective Dose (ED) was estimated using PCXMC [4] (computer simulation algorithm), by summing several projections in a CBCT rotation [5]. Information about the CBCT system, clinical protocols and assumed geometric conditions was used to estimate ED for different examinations. MSCT ED was estimated using DLP and the ImPACT calculator [6]. ED was estimated for adults (>15 years) to be in the range 4-9μSv for CBCT dependent on the protocol used and 59μSv for MSCT. For paediatric (5 to 15 years) patients the dose was in the range 6-22μSv for CBCT and was 41μv for MSCT. There is potentially a dose saving for scaphoid imaging using CBCT with the magnitude dependent on the settings. Optimisation of settings is required and justification should be based on image quality and clinical practicality as well as dose [7].Summary: Local Institution comparison of patient effective dose using Cone Beam Computed Tomography and Multi Slice Computed Tomography for scaphoid clinical imagingReferences: [1] Nardi, C. et al.
