Abstract

Pulmonary abscess is a complication of cystic fibrosis. Model-based iterative reconstruction is a reconstructive algorithm that can substantially reduce the radiation dose of computed tomography to that of radiography while maintaining diagnostic quality. This study reports the use of ultra-low-dose computed tomography with model-based iterative reconstruction in monitoring resolution of a pulmonary abscess caused by cystic fibrosis.
