Multi-slice computed tomography (MSCT): the dose challenge of the new revolution.

Abstract:

Multislice computed tomography (MSCT) has dramatically increased the flexibility and availability of computed tomography (CT), so that the technique is being used increasingly across a widening range of applications. However CT still remains a technique with high absorbed radiation dose, and contributes an increasingly greater proportion of the total collective dose from man-made sources of radiation.
