OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to assess the impact of Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction (ASIR) on radiation dose and study quality for coronary CT angiography (CTA). SUBJECTS AND METHODS We prospectively evaluated 574 consecutive patients undergoing coronary CTA at three centers. Comparisons were performed between consecutive groups initially using filtered back projection (FBP) (n = 331) and subsequently ASIR (n = 243) with regard to patient and scan characteristics… CONTINUE READING
