Task Group No. 293 - Task Group on Size Specific Dose Estimate (SSDE) for Head CT

AAPM Members, Affiliates and Non-Member Affiliates - Login for access to additional information


The charge of this task group is to develop methods and data to better estimate absorbed dose to the head based upon the CTDIvol computed from the head dosimetry phantom. We will begin by examining existing data and it is anticipated that if the task group is initiated in summer 2016, this TG could be completed by early 2017. Because of the impact of this work on pediatric CT, a pediatric radiologist will join the task group. Of note, pediatric radiologist Kimberly Applegate made this request to John Boone in May 2016.
