Low-dose spiral CT scanning technology can not only ensure the image quality, but also reduce the radiation level of patients undergoing examination. It is valuable to reduce the dose of spiral CT scanning properly, especially in adult chest, nasal sinus and children's brain, and it is worth popularizing. This article reviews the current situation and progress of low-dose spiral CT scanning technology in clinical application.
