To assess the diagnostic accuracy, cancer staging, image quality, and radiation dose of 80-kVp computed tomography (CT) images for patients with colorectal cancers (CRCs) using sinogram-affirmed iterative reconstruction (SAFIRE). Sixty-four consecutive patients (mean weight 62.5  ±  11.3 kg, mean BMI 24.1  ±  3.3 kg/m2) with known CRC underwent dual-energy(More)
Accurate and consistent visualization of the entire coronary system with high-grade imaging quality is crucial for routine applications of multi-detector-computed tomography (MDCT) coronary angiography. To determine the imaging quality of 64-slice-MDCT coronary angiography, we respectively explored the quantitative parameters of imaging quality in 105(More)
