GE's ASiR dose-reduction technology: A reconstruction technology that may enable reduction in pixel noise standard deviation.
ASiR provides these important imaging benefits:
- ASiR may allow for reduced mA in the acquisition of diagnostic images, thereby reducing the dose required.1
- ASiR may enable improvement in low-contrast detectability.1
- ASiR may help clinicians achieve confident diagnoses with lower dose.1
1. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
