This book explores the physics of CT dosimetry and provides practical guidance on best practice for medical researchers and practitioners. A rigorous description of the basic physics of CT dosimetry is presented and illustrates flaws of the current methodology.

It also contains helpful (and rigorous) shortcuts to reduce the measurement workload for medical physicists. The mathematical rigor is accompanied by easily-understood physical explanations and numerous illustrative figures.


  • Authored by a recognised expert in the field and award-winning teacher
  • Includes derivations for tube current modulation and variable pitch as well as stationary table techniques
  • Explores abnormalities present in dose-tracking software based on CTDI and presents methods to correct them

Industry Reviews

"This book is written by Professor Robert L Dixon who is very famous in the diagnostic radiology, especially for computed tomography (CT) dosimetry work. This book addresses the needs of all medical physicists who are working on the optimization of CT dose. I am confident that who so ever will refer to this book will appreciate its content. Diagnostic radiology is an integral part of any hospital. CT imparts the largest portion of radiation dose among all radiation diagnostic imaging equipment. As the number of examinations is going up every year, `As Low As Reasonably Achievable' (ALARA) principle has become a central issue for any radiation installation with the intention to bring the doses down. Understanding the concept of CT dose index (CTDI) is a very important topic to optimize the patient doses.

Overall, this book is valuable. I certainly recommend this book to all physicists, teachers, and students who want to get involved in CT dose optimization."
