The impact of patient size, localizer direction, off-centring positioning, and tube voltage on Hounsfield Unit (HU)

accuracy and radiation dose during CT examinations. The application of cutting-edge instrumentation and methodologies in his research will generate useful data and devise a correction scheme for the Hounsfield Unit. This ground breaking research niche would greatly help in optimising CT system operation to improve diagnostic efficiency and reduce patient radiation dose.
