OBJECTIVE The purpose was to evaluate the perceived spatial and contrast resolution for a wide range of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) devices. STUDY DESIGN A customized polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) phantom was developed. Inserts containing a line-pair and rod pattern were used. The phantom was scanned with 13 CBCT devices and 1 multislice CT (MSCT) device using a variety of scanning protocols. The images were presented to 4 observers for scoring. RESULTS The observer scores showed… CONTINUE READING
