How AI has improved CT image reconstruction for cardiac cases

Deep learning-based image reconstruction (DLR) has been a hot topic in CT over the past five years, as researchers and vendors have continuously demonstrated the technology's potential to improve on legacy and filtered back-projection (FBP) reconstruction methods.

Owing primarily to its noise reduction capabilities, DLR has repeatedly been shown to sharply lower radiation dose while maintaining image quality. Accordingly, commercial and research activity has accelerated.

DLR is also demonstrating its value particularly in cardiac CT applications.
