ClarityIQ is a novel X-ray imaging technology, that combines advanced real-time image noise
reduction algorithms, with state-of-the-art hardware to reduce patient entrance dose
significantly. This is realized by anatomy-specific optimization of the full acquisition
chain (grid switch, beam filtering, pulse width, spot size, detector and image processing
engine) for every clinical task individually. Furthermore, smaller focal spot sizes, shorter
pulses and the introduction of automatic real-time motion compensation in subtraction imaging
are used, which are known to positively influence image quality . The final effect on the
clinical image quality in peripheral angiography is investigated in this study.
