Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the effects of parameter presets of the forward projected model-based iterative reconstruction solution (FIRST) on the accuracy of pulmonary nodule volume measurement. A torso phantom with simulated nodules [diameter: 5, 8, 10, and 12 mm; computed tomography (CT) density: − 630 HU] was scanned with a multi-detector CT at tube currents of 10 mA (ultra-low-dose: UL-dose) and 270 mA (standard-dose: Std-dose). Images were reconstructed with filtered back projection [FBP; standard (Std-FBP), ultra-low-dose (UL-FBP)], FIRST Lung (UL-Lung), and FIRST Body (UL-Body), and analyzed with a semi-automatic software. The error in the volume measurement was determined. The errors with UL-Lung and UL-Body were smaller than that with UL-FBP. The smallest error was 5.8% ± 0.3 for the 12-mm nodule with UL-Body (middle lung). Our results indicated that FIRST Body would be superior to FIRST Lung in terms of accuracy of nodule measurement with UL-dose CT.
