  3. Calculated based on MTF 4% value in X/Y. 4% MTF is measured under 120kv, 200mA, 1.0sec gantry rotation and Edge Plus kernel.
  4. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR-V 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.
