10). Clinical Issues Suspected aortic dissection and pulmonary embolism are among the most common reasons for emergent CT. These protocols account for the some of highest radiation doses in clinical practice because of the need for thin sections of the entire thorax. CT aortography also commonly involves the abdomen and a pre-contrast phase. High utilization of thoracic CTA is unlikely to change given the life-threatening nature of aortic syndromes and pulmonary embolism. Referral of appropriate cases to MR angiography or ventilation-perfusion scintigraphy, limiting the area scanned, omitting part or all of the non-contrast phase, and use of low tube voltage are all important means of reducing radiation.
