Final Activity Report - CT SAFETY AND EFFICA (Safety and efficacy of computed tomography (CT): a broad perspective)

Project ID: 2388


This is the final report of the CT SAFETY AND EFFICA project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). The project was designed around four major scientific challenges in computed tomography (CT): justification of CT scans, optimisation of CT technology, the proper application of CT scans of children, and assessment of patient exposure to X-rays during CT scans. The opening chapter places the research in a global context and summarises the methodology used. The accomplishments of the research group were realised by tackling the scientific challenges in a constructive and synergetic multidisciplinary cooperation. The research focused on twelve relevant clinical problems and it yielded clear and balanced answers on aspects of justification associated with these specific problems.
