Abstract

This study was performed using Somatom Definition Flash (Siemens, Enlarge, Germany) and GE 64-MDCT (Discovery 750 HD, GE HEALTHCARE, Milwaukee, USA.) using high-density medical materials that (are indispensable to?) computed tomography. We analyzed quantitatively the rate of change of the CT number of the CT reconstruction images by means of the IMAR and MAR algorithms using the phantom images acquired after scanning and previously captured raw data images. As a result, it was shown that the IMAR and MAR algorithms provided if ferent phantom images in the case of all medical high-density materials (p <0.05). The black streak artifacts were analyzed using the MAR and IMAR algorithms to determine if they corresponded to stainless steel materials (p>0.05). Also, it was found that the application of the IMAR algorithm affects the attenuation deviation, because there is a change in the image CT number compared to that before. The results suggest that, in the future, after the implant procedure, it would be useful to observe the surgical site and surrounding tissues during follow-up CT scans.
