Managing CT radiation dose while performing a high-quality exam without compromising the image remains a critical challenge for healthcare professionals. With Hitachi’s Iterative Reconstruction Intelli IPV, you can now perform your scans at low radiation levels while achieving clear, consistent, and high-quality images for improved patient care.
Compared to FBP, our Iterative Progressive Reconstruction with Visual Modelling (IPV) enables you to:
CT image reconstruction based on filtered back projection (FBP) provided clear and natural images, however scans must be done at full dosage levels. Then again, conventional IR scanned at lower dosage doesn’t match the Noise Power Spectrum (NPS) - resulting in blurry images. Our Intelli IPV combines the best of both worlds by giving you low-dose IR imaging with clear image texture similar to FBP.
The projection image of FBP gets reconstructed several times with different models. The physical component helps to keep image textures natural by processing it through specific frequencies. The object model clears images by reducing X-ray noise and the statistical model reduces artifacts. Together, this Vision Model delivers clear, noise-free images even at low-dose levels.
The use of iodinated contrast media provides improved images and help to distinguish normal from abnormal condition. However, there is always a risk for adverse reactions especially for children or patients with renal dysfunctions. That's why the Intelli IPV iterative reconstruction technology comes into play as it detects even small amounts of contrast media with high sensitivity and resolution – which means you can use less contrast media and improve your patient care.
