ObjectivesThe purpose of this study was to evaluate lesion conspicuity achieved with five different iterative reconstruction techniques from four CT vendors at three different dose levels. Comparisons were made of iterative algorithm and filtered back projection (FBP) among and within systems.MethodsAn anthropomorphic liver phantom was examined with four CT systems, each from a different vendor. CTDIvol levels of 5 mGy, 10 mGy and 15 mGy were chosen. Images were reconstructed with FBP and the… Expand
A Liver Phantom Study: CT Radiation Dose Reduction and Different Image Reconstruction Algorithms Affect Diagnostic Quality
TLDR
This study shows that iterative reconstruction algorithms, in particular Veo, improve lesion detectability in a liver phantom, however, a too aggressive dose reduction may result in poorer image quality. Expand

TLDR
Iterative model reconstruction provides better image quality and tumor conspicuity than FBP and IR with considerable noise reduction in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Expand
Ultra-low dose chest computed tomography: Effect of iterative reconstruction levels on image quality.
TLDR
In comparison with the FBP technique, ASIR-V enhanced quantitative image quality parameters at all ultra-low doses tested and showed consistency with body size and collimation, Hence, ASir-V may be useful for improving image quality of chest CT at ultra- low doses. Expand
Comparison of the image qualities of filtered back-projection, adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction, and model-based iterative reconstruction for CT venography at 80 kVp
TLDR
CTV at 80 kVp with MBIR was superior to FBP and ASIR regarding subjective and objective image qualities and improves diagnostic confidence in diagnosing DVT. Expand
Diagnostic performance of reduced-dose CT with a hybrid iterative reconstruction algorithm for the detection of hypervascular liver lesions: a phantom study
TLDR
A half-dose scan with a hybrid iterative reconstruction preserves objective image quality, and an aggressive reduction of the radiation dose would impair the detectability of hypervascular liver lesions, although objective image noise and CNR would be preserved by a hybrid IR algorithm. Expand
Hybrid Iterative Reconstruction for Low Radiation Dose Computed Tomography
TLDR
The finding that the low-frequency components (HIR) are greater than one of FBP (previously believed) may result in the discrepancy between the performance of human observers and that of the ideal low-contrast objects. Expand

TLDR
Use of ASIR makes it possible to reduce radiation significantly while maintaining adequate image quality in non-contrast head CT, which may be particularly useful for younger patients in an emergency setting and in follow-up. Expand

Iterative reconstruction algorithm for CT: can radiation dose be decreased while low-contrast detectability is preserved?
TLDR
As the radiation dose at CT decreases, the IR algorithm does not preserve the low-contrast detectability and image quality of computed tomography at different radiation dose levels reconstructed with iterative reconstruction (IR) and filtered back projection (FBP). Expand
Iterative reconstruction reduces abdominal CT dose.
TLDR
A blending of 50-90% ASIR and FBP may improve image quality of low dose CT examinations of the liver, and thus give a potential for reducing radiation dose. Expand
