CT pulmonary angiography using different noise index values with an iterative reconstruction algorithm and dual energy CT imaging using different body mass indices: Image quality and radiation dose.


OBJECTIVE To investigate the differences in imaging quality and radiation dose in CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) by using fast-kV switching dual energy CT imaging and 3D Smart mA modulation at different body mass indices (BMIs) and at different noise index (NI) values with an adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR) algorithm. METHODS Four… (More)
