Table 4 Mean effective dose for the original scan (100%) and the simulated dose reductions (70%, 50%, 30%) for boys and girls, the respective scan region (hip, knee, ankle) and the sum of the effective dose (mean)

From: Ultra-low-dose computed tomography for torsion measurements of the lower extremities in children and adolescents
