Mean CTDIvol and DLP were significantly lower (CTDIvol: 1 vs. 3: p<0.001; 2 vs. 3: p=0.002 / DLP: 1 vs. 3: p<0.001; 2 vs. 3: p<0.001) in group 3 (4.49±1.48 mGy / 161±55 mGycm) compared to group 1 (7.45±2.72 mGy / 252±96 mGycm) and group 2 (6.46±3.72 mGy / 228±136 mGycm).


Subjective image quality was rated good to excellent in >91% (110/120) with an interreader agreement of 90.3%.


The three protocols did not significantly differ in subjective image quality.


While group 3 presented with higher BN levels (1 vs. 3: p=0.003; 2 vs. 3: p=0.026), background noise was similar between group 1 and group 2. The SNR was highest in group 2 (1 vs. 2: p<0.002; 2 vs. 3: p<0.001) and similar between groups 1 and 3.
