Weight-based PET-CT protocols seem to cut radiation risk

Reductions in radiation dose may be achieved by using a patient-specific, weight-based protocols during whole-body FDG PET/CT imaging, researchers reported. The radiation dose can be reduced by 43% (P<0.0001), according to Charbel Saade, PhD, of the American University in Beirut, and colleagues.

That dose reduction translated to a 69% in the lifetime attributable risk to female patients and a 21% reduction in radiation-related injury to male patients ... Read more.
