Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) offers a non-invasive diagnostic tool for evaluating patients with suspected coronary artery disease. However, radiation exposure remains a limitation of this modality. In an effort to address this concern, numerous methods of radiation dose reduction have been developed. Advances in scanner technology and better protocols permit low radiation dose cardiac imaging with doses below one mSv. In individuals with the suitable body size, a lower tube voltage setting may allow for a decreased radiation dose while maintaining image quality because radiation exposure varies with the square of the tube potential.
Journal of Medical Diagnostic Methods is one of the top online publishing journals for research from the field of Cardiac Computed Tomography Angiography. The open access articles published in this scholarly journal are reviewed by at least two reviewers of the associated fields. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, case reports, short communications, etc and emphasizes theoretical and experimental work. To ensure high quality articles, both editors and reviewers actively participate in the peer review process and help in completing the review process within 21 days. As an important educational platform the journal provides scientists and researchers access to the newest trends and research outlooks.
