Abstract

CT data acquisition and image reconstruction techniques are closely related to image quality and patient radiation dose. There is little question that technological developments currently underway will change the nature of both, and result in improved quality and diagnostic value of cardiovascular CT images while hopefully minimizing radiation dose to the patient.
