Paper Abstract

In a modern CT system, the localizer radiograph (LR), which makes a visualized scan range planning and provides information for individual patient oriented automatic exposure control, is now a standard procedure before a major diagnostic scan. We proposed a rotating projection based localizer radiograph (RPLR), in contrast to current realization as static tube positioned scanning. With this approach, the localizer Radiograph can be realized to improve the whole clinical workflow by providing no geometry deformation from multiple viewing directions within one scan, with balanced image performance and controllable x-ray dose, . Somehow with this feasibility check on current 16-row CT gantry, the scanned dose is still higher than traditional situation, but with dedicated dose reduction techniques proposed with the RPLP, the exposure dose for the scanning can be dramatically decreased.
