Beam-hardening in 70-kV Coronary CT angiography: Artifact reduction using an advanced post-processing algorithm.

Abstract

PURPOSE To investigate the effect of an iterative beam-hardening correction algorithm (iBHC) on artifact reduction and image quality in coronary CT angiography (cCTA) with low tube voltage. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-six patients (17 male, mean age, 57.3 ± 14.5 years) were prospectively enrolled in this IRB-approved study and underwent 70-kV cCTA using a… (More)
