CARE Right – Low kV

Clinical Examples: Scanning with the low kV

Discover the great impact of low kV imaging!
The following clinical cases are scanned with low kV and see its power on the reduction of radiation dose or the contrast media administration.

Diagnosis: A re-evaluation CTA using only 20 ml of contrast media confirmed a Stanford B aortic dissection, beginning behind the junction of the left subclavian artery and stretching to just below the diaphragm, with a new partially thrombotic occlusion of the false lumen.
