Technical parameters that need to be selected for any scan include: collimation thickness, tube current [milliamperage (mA)], and kilovoltage (kV). 5 mm. 75 mm) increases the radiation dose by approximately 30% with our in-house reduced protocol and is applied only in selected cases of vascular abnormalities, visualization of small structures, and cardiac CT (Table 2).
