Characterizing canine dose from external beam irradiation
Absorbed dose from Computed Tomography (CT) is a major concern on an individual basis as well as for the collective population due to increased frequency of and dependency on CT scans for diagnostic and therapeutic imaging. Colorado State University recently integrated a large bore multi-slice Positron Emission Tomography and Computed Tomography (PET/CT) scanner into the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The new PET/CT and high volume of canine CT imaging exams provides a unique opportunity for research into canine organ dose that compliments efforts aimed at characterizing human CT dose. This ...
