Image reconstruction in cardiovascular CT: Part 2 – Iterative reconstruction; potential and pitfalls
Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography
Cardiovascular CT; Iterative reconstruction
© 2019 The use of IR in CT previously has been prohibitively complicated and time consuming, however improvements in computer processing power now make it possible on almost all CT scanners. Due to its potential to allow scanning at lower doses, IR has received a lot of attention in the medical literature and has become a successful commercial product. Its use in cardiovascular CT has been driven in part due to concerns about radiation dose and image quality. This manuscript discusses the various vendor permutations of iterative reconstruction (IR) in detail and critically appraises the current clinical research available on the various IR techniques used in cardiovascular CT.
