Real Time CT & CT Fluoroscopy. MDA/00/10, Mar-00

This report examines the technology, applications and dosimetry of CT scanners that are capable of performing continuous, real-time imaging. Toshiba first introduced real-time CT in 1995, using it in their contrast scan timing package, Sure Start, and their interventional application, CT Fluoroscopy. Since then, other manufacturers have introduced similar technology. The dosimetric implications for both patient and operator of the equipment are examined, and recommendations for radiation protection are given.
