Paper Abstract

With the advancement of Computed Tomography technology, improving image quality while reducing patient dose has been a big technical challenge. The recent CT750 HD system from GE Healthcare provides significantly improved spatial resolution and the capability to reduce dose during routine clinical imaging. This paper evaluates the image quality of this system. Spatial resolution, dose reduction, noise, and low contrast detectability have been quantitatively characterized. Results show a quantifiable and visually discernable higher spatial resolution for both body and cardiac scanning modes without compromise of image noise. Further, equivalent image quality performance with up to 50% lower dose has been achieved.
