The other variable involved in dose is the protocol used. The lowest radiation and most commonly applied is acquired by prospective triggering; that is, the X-rays are only on during the acquisition of data that will be used for the image. MDCT, however, can use prospective triggering or retrospective gating, 120 or 140 kilovolts (kV) (with protocols possible with lower kV depending upon future research and tube current improvements), and a wide range of mA. Retrospective gating means that the X-rays are on throughout the heart cycle.
