The flat-panel based system enables reconstruction with a 1 mm isotropic voxel size for the entire FoV and as small as 0. Here, A T signifies the matrix transpose of A. The process starts with an initial estimate of the volume image f. Email this NetForum article. Time-of-flight technology measures the brighvtiew time difference between the detection of coincident gamma rays for more accurate localization, producing a higher quality image brigutview allowing for lower tracer dose amounts in patients and shorter imaging times. These scans are smoothed and down-sampled to match the SPECT voxel size during the generation of the attenuation map.

Meztihn Siemens Healthineers will announce U. The flat-panel based system enables reconstruction with a 1 mm isotropic voxel size for the entire FoV and as small as 0. Read about our cookies. We took a deeper understanding of what works for you and your patients and combined it with advanced intelligence in technology and services. Concurrent Imaging Concurrent Imaging produces more data, faster Concurrent imaging is Philips exclusive feature that allows a single data acquisition to produce as many as fifteen different image sets configured around various agent and imaging parameters.
They were reconstructed with FBP since iterative reconstruction currently supports only voxel sizes of 1 mm or broghtview. Pre-processing of the X-ray data, filteredbackprojection reconstruction FBPand iterative reconstruction are described in the following sections.
CoPlanar FP is tailored to nuclear bbrightview. Uniform operation Uniform operation reduces retraining BrightView XCT is designed specifically for nuclear medicine and does not require CT retraining for nuclear medicine technologists. For XCT reconstruction, an iterative method called SART 6 is used to create an initial image estimate, followed by several iterations of an ordered-subset maximum likelihood method.
Quick review image reconstructed with FBP left and corresponding image obtained with iterative reconstruction right. Iterative reconstruction The basic principle of iterative reconstruction is outlined in Figure 3. These variations in image intensity tend to accentuate the knit lines. Mirada Medical Joins U.
The patient zone is designed to create an optimum physical and emotional environment for patients. Larger axial extents are imaged in a step-and-shoot fashion, by combining volumes from several XCT spins. Since respiratory motion and peristalsis cause the structures in the chest, abdomen and pelvis to change position and shape, the best xt quality for localization studies of the chest, abdomen and pelvis will be achieved during breath holding using the 12 second rotation.
The process starts with an initial estimate of the volume image f. Compact siting reduces renovation costs. Table limit is lbs kg. It can also be used for high-resolution sub-volume reconstruction of a region of interest. The thus prepared projections are back-projected with the Feldkamp method to generate the volume image. Focal uptake of I indicates disease.
Shallow tidal breathing is usually birghtview for extremity and head studies, using either the 12 or 24 second rotation, since these areas are generally not affected by respiratory motion.
It is also used brigytview high-resolution 0. Pre- and post-processing The X-ray projection data of an XCT acquisition must be pre-processed prior to reconstruction, to calibrate system characteristics and to compensate for various physical effects: Global Illumination from Vital Images. Therefore, the non-uniformities in HU values that can exist with FBP reconstructions brighvtiew not adversely impact brightciew attenuation map. An ultra-large gantry aperture provides an open patient experience.
The quick review image provides almost immediate feedback to the user allowing them to quickly evaluate the CT acquisition. Measured and expected HU values are summarized in Table 1. Defective detector pixels are masked. However, the filter sharpness can be adjusted by the user to achieve an optimum trade-off between noise reduction and sharpness for a given application. The system geometry for each projection, i.
Higher-count regions remain unchanged, to retain detail brightvjew sharpness. Acquisition of data in volume through true isotropic voxels provides high-quality images even when viewed at oblique angles.
The acquired X-ray projections are half-field projections of the object, because of the offset-detector geometry. The projection extension is discarded by the weighting. News Teleradiology November 25, Estimated time of purchase. Iterative reconstruction can be used to improve image quality in localization studies. Either or X-ray projections are acquired for each spin during 12, 24, or 60 second rotation time depending on the protocol.
Results and discussion System performance In the following, typical XCT brgihtview performance measurements are presented. These hold only approximately brightvies the XCT acquisition geometry. TOP 10 Related.
