Statement of Purpose/Need:
This webinar will explain novel noise reduction technology for digital subtraction angiography and how this reduces radiation dose and affects image quality.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Identify the working principle of dose reduction algorithms.
• Apply strategies to reduce radiation doses in digital subtraction angiography and fluoroscopy
• Summarize how the software may affect image quality
This webinar is intended for radiologists, interventional radiologists and neurologists involved in neuro-angiographic imaging.
