PixelShine is an algorithm for de-noising CT datasets supporting new CT protocols to drive patient dose down, while image quality is maintained. PixelShine may aid detectability of subtle pathologies which are borderline visible. The applications apply to CT without limit whether Filtered Back projection (FBP) and Iterative Reconstruction (IR).
