In the patient group, the mean density measured in the 80 kVp images was 101.5[+ or -]20.1 HU (range, 67.5-146.3 HU) (Fig.
Data presented in this study suggest that this concentration can be lowered down to 160 or 200mgI/mL (total iodine dose of 240 and 300 mg I/kg, resp.), when combined with reduced tube voltages of 80 and 100 kVp, respectively, and additional use of iterative reconstruction ASiR 60%.
