OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to evaluate the image quality and diagnostic adequacy of the following two CT enterography protocols in patients weighing less than 160 lb (72 kg): 80-kVp imaging with the adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) in comparison with 120-kVp imaging with the filtered back projection reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 133 CT enterography examinations of 127 patients weighing less than 160 lb, 64 80-kVp… CONTINUE READING
