BACKGROUND Spinal fusion surgery is an important procedure for treating spinal diseases and computed tomography (CT) is a critical tool for postoperative evaluation. However, CT image quality is considerably impaired by metal artifacts and image noise. PURPOSE To explore whether metal artifacts and image noise can be reduced by combining two technologies… CONTINUE READING
