Reduce Dose for combined thorax and abdomen scans

For optimal dose distribution within one scan range, use the scan protocol "ThorAbd."* This protocol has a special feature that uses a lower dose for the thorax area than for the abdomen. For the thorax, 60% of the normal radiation is used. The average dose saving can be 30%. The green dashed lines (image 1) indicate the borders between the lowered and the normal dose. This line can be adapted when the third recon job (Abd) is selected.
