Effect of iterative reconstruction algorithms on peripheral MDCT angiography virtual histology plaque volumes: have we been overestimating disease burden?


Our objective was to compare plaque volumes of multidetector computed tomographic images reconstructed using adaptive statistical iterative reconstruction (ASIR), model-based iterative reconstruction (MBIR), and filtered back projection (FBP). We reviewed 25 patients for a total of 50 extremities imaged on the same scanner. Calcified plaque FBP volume (3468… (More)
