Hi Medlibbers,

My second needle in the haystack.  I'm trying to find the issue # and pages
for an article by Raman et al in Am J Cardiol vol. 90, 2002.  Its about
using the new SCA&I/NEMA cardiac standard phantom.  Average entrance dose
per image to the phantom was found to be about 25% lower with Innova, and
all measures of image quality on Innova were better than or equal to the
state-of-the-art II-based system.  These measures included iodine
low-contrast delectability, moving guidewire visualization, and working
thickness range (useful dynamic range).

Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
