Both supine and prone position imaging can be performed at a dose of less than 12 mSv, using an effective tube current of 50 mAs or modulated dose protocols. This radiation dose is similar to or lower than that from a double-contrast barium enema and ≤50% the diagnostic reference level for routine abdominopelvic CT.
