Topic: Reducing the radiation and contrast loading at preprocedural planning and follow-up imaging for patient receiving vascular intervention

Abstract

The role of CT imaging is critical in device selection and procedure planning before vascular intervention and in complication monitoring after the procedure. The balance between maintaining image quality for precise preprocedural of evaluation and quantification of anatomical structures and reducing contrast medium to mitigate the impact of contrast medium on patient with poor renal function is important. Long-term serial follow up may result in accumulation of radiation, which is of particular concern if patients are young. CT imaging protocol with reduced radiation dose would lower the radiation dose.
