This article summarises a recent study of the use of an Automatic Tube Potential System (ATPS) in CT scans of the head in pediatric patients. The
results showed that ATPS significantly reduces the delivered dose in unenhanced cranial CT scans in infants, while maintaining quantitative and
qualitative image quality.
