3-month-old baby, ONE rotation volumetric CT scan was performed to visualize the patient's vascular anatomy. FIRST, Forward projected model-based Iterative Reconstruction SoluTion, was implemented into the protocol and automatically applied to the scan. 3D Volume Rendered and Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) demonstrate a coarctation of the aorta.
