Ultra Low-Dose CT Image-Guided Intervention Using Previous Scans as Prior Constraints


It is well documented that the more X-ray CT imaging exposure time in a clinic, the more harm is caused to the patient. Low-dose CT is desirable in numerous clinical applications.


Low-dose CT images are directly correlated with lowering the mAs parameter in data acquisition and modeling the data property for statistical image reconstructions.


Algorithm is fully automated and extremely robust - Results are outstanding in terms of low dose measure and image quality
