Quality assurance programme for computed tomography Paperback / softback
Part of the IAEA human health series series
This publication presents a harmonized approach to quality assurance in the field of computed tomography applied to both diagnostics and therapy.
It provides a careful analysis of the principles and specific instructions that can be used for a quality assurance programme for optimal performance and reduced patient dose in diagnostic radiology.
In some cases, radiotherapy programmes are making a transition from 2-D to 3-D radiotherapy, a complex process which critically depends on accurate treatment planning.
In this respect, the authors also provide detailed information about the elements needed for quality assurance testing, including those relating to accurate patient characterization as needed for radiotherapy treatment planning.
