Abstract [en]

AIM OF THE STUDY: The aim of this study was to describe a new functionality aimed at X-ray dose reduction, referred to as spot region of interest (Spot ROI) and to compare it with existing dose-saving functionalities, spot fluoroscopy (Spot F), and conventional collimation (CC).

MATERIAL AND METHODS: Dose area product, air kerma, and peak skin dose were measured for Spot ROI, Spot F, and CC in three different fields of view (FOVs) 20 × 20 cm, 15 × 15 cm, and 11 × 11 cm using an anthropomorphic head phantom RS-230T. The exposure sequence was 5 min of pulsed fluoroscopy (7.5 pulses per s) followed by 7× digital subtraction angiography (DSA) runs with 30 frames per DSA acquisition (3 fps × 10 s). The collimation in Spot F and CC was adjusted such that the size of the anatomical area exposed was as large as the Spot ROI area in each FOV.

RESULTS: The results for all FOVs were the following: for the fluoroscopy, all measured parameters for Spot ROI and Spot F were lower than corresponding values for CC. For DSA and DSA plus fluoroscopy, all measured parameters for Spot ROI were lower than corresponding parameters for Spot F and CC.

CONCLUSION: Spot ROI is a promising dose-saving technology that can be applied in fluoroscopy and acquisition. The biggest benefit of Spot ROI is its ability to keep the entire FOV information always visible.
