CARE Right – low kV
Scanning with low kV
Discover the great impact of low kV imaging. The following clinical cases are scanned with low kV and see its power on the reduction of radiation dose or the contrast media administration.
Case 1: This CT aorta angiography shows a dissection in the descending aorta
Case 2: This CT runoff angiography shows a bilateral dorsalis pedis stenosis

Case 3: Planning CT angiography prior to TAVI procedure
Case 4: CT chest abdomen pelvis angiography
Diagnosis: A re-evaluation CTA using only 20 mL of contrast media confirmed a Stanford B aortic dissection, beginning behind the junction of the left subclavian artery and stretching to just below the diaphragm, with a new partially thrombotic occlusion of the false lumen.
