Abstract

Diagnostic imaging procedures require optimization depending on the medical task at hand, the apparatus being used and patient physical and anatomical characteristics. The assessment of the radiation dose and associated risks plays a key role in safety and quality management for radiation protection purposes. In this work, we aim at developing a methodology for personalized organ-level dose assessment in x-ray CT imaging.
