OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare iterative model reconstruction (IMR) and hybrid iterative reconstruction (HIR) of 80-kVp abdominal dynamic CT scans obtained with a low-dose contrast agent. SUBJECTS AND METHODS A group of 27 consecutively registered patients underwent abdominal dynamic CT with an 80-kVp protocol and a low dose of contrast agent (300 mg I/kg). Another 27 patients who had previously undergone a 120-kVp protocol with filtered back projection (FBP) and a… CONTINUE READING
