Learning Objectives: 1) Report the significant increase in radiation dose to pediatric patients due to their size. 2) Report on new data about excess radiation-related cancer risks at CT radiation levels, especially children. 3) Report on the estimated cancer mortality from pediatric CT studies. 4) Identify the influence of various selectable CT scan factors upon CT radiation doses. 5) Identify approaches by which clinical pediatric CT radiation doses can be reasonably reduced.
