Posterior fossa stroke on brain CT

Does iterative mode reconstruction designed for brain CT have a positive effect on the accuracy of posterior fossa stroke diagnosis on brain CT? Read about the findings in the study below.


Key points:

  • Iterative model reconstruction of brain CT data can facilitate the diagnosis of ischaemic stroke.
  • IMR improved the detectability of low-contrast lesions in the posterior fossa.
  • IMR-neuro yielded better image quality and improved observer performance
