Philips IMR offers new capabilities to simultaneously reduce CT Radiation and enhance image quality
Date:6/17/2013

ANDOVER, Mass., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) today announced new capabilities for its Iterative Model Reconstruction (IMR) technology, a knowledge-based iterative reconstruction technique, that will simultaneously bring enhanced benefits to clinicians and patients. The new capabilities were announced at the International Society for Computed Tomography's (ISCT) 15th Annual International Symposium on Multidetector-Row CT, and include IMR's ability to simultaneously deliver lower radiation dose[1] to patients and improved image quality to physicians when acquiring computed tomography (CT) scans with a Philips modality. The new capabilities also mark the first time a knowledge-based solution takes benefits previously realized only in routine body imaging to advanced neuro and cardiovascular applications.

With Philips IMR, low dose and enhanced image quality can be delivered together in CT imaging. With IMR, clinicians acquiring CT images can simultaneously lower radiation dose by 60-80 percent, with 43-80 percent improvement in low-contrast detectability and 70-83 percent less image noise, relative to standard reconstruction techniques.

"The ability to perform high-quality CT images with reduced radiation dose to patients is critical to their care," said Dianna M. E. Bardo, M.D., associate professor of radiology, pediatrics and cardiovascular medicine, director of cardiac radiology, pediatric neuroradiologist, Oregon Health & Science University, Portland, Ore. "IMR is a meaningful innovation that will help improve patient care and outcomes by improving image quality for low dose examinations. As a pediatric radiologist, I can confidently acquire diagnostic images without compromising the care of my patients. This is especially important since many pediatric patients may require frequent imaging throughout their lif
