CT Organ Dose Determination

The first two in a series of papers from the line of research on CT Dosimetry that Dr Manuel Arreola (Assistant Professor & Chief, Clinical Radiological Physics) and Dr Lynn Rill (Assistant Professor, Clinical Radiological Physics) ,with the collaboration of Dr Sharat Bidari (Assistant Professor, Neuroradiology), have been working on for the past three years have been published in the Radiology journal.

The first article describes the post-mortem dosimetry developed by our physics graduate Dr Tom Griglock and Drs Arreola and Bidari:

Determining Organ Doses from CT with Direct Measurements in Postmortem Subjects: Part 1—Methodology and Validation. Thomas M. Griglock, Lindsay Sinclair, Anna Mench, Brian Cormack, Sharatchandra Bidari, Lynn Rill, Manuel Arreola

The second paper describes the basic mathematical model for calculation of organ doses developed by our physics graduate Dr Lindsay Sinclair and Drs Arreola and Rill:

Determining Organ Doses from CT with Direct Measurements in Postmortem Subjects: Part 2—Correlations with Patient-specific Parameters. Lindsay Sinclair, Thomas M. Griglock, Anna Mench, Rebecca Lamoureux, Brian Cormack, Sharatchandra Bidari, Lynn Rill, Manuel Arreola
