An example of iterative reconstruction image reconstruction to improve the image quality of low dose CT scans to enable lower dose imaging

An example of the clearer images enabled by iterative reconstruction using Philips iDose4 software. The software can enhance the sharpness of the stent and reduce metal and calcium blooming artifacts to give a clearer view of the coronary artery lumen.
