Dynamic myocardial CT perfusion (CTP) of the heart is a novel technique able to depict cardiac ischemia, offering a comprehensive understanding of its complexities. Artificial intelligence improves image quality of the scan, necessary to make a faster diagnosis uncovering the potential value of dynamic CTP by improving image quality, decreasing image noise, improving tissue depiction, and decreasing effective radiation dose. However, some requirements remain to be addressed for it to be widely accepted. Based on the work and the rapidly-evolving algorithms and methods for this modality, a growing role in the dynamic CT perfusion application is expected in the future.

Olga Sliwicka studied medicine at the University of Varmia and Masuria, Olsztyn, Poland, and the Medical University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland, where she graduated with distinction in 2018. Shortly after, Olga joined the Advanced X-ray Tomographic Imaging group at the Department of Medical Imaging, Radboudumc.
