MRI patient throughput and CT dose reduction. How?

November 13, 2009

MRI patient throughput and CT dose reduction is not just a matter of improving the scan speed and technique. The new advanced image processing algorithms could also play a very important role.
A collaborative study between ContextVision AB, SharpView AB, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) will investigate advanced 3D image filtering as a means of increasing patient throughput and improving image quality in MRI and further enabling dose reduction in CT. Researchers will compare state-of-the-art 3D techniques with 2D filters. For more information, please visit http://www.imagingeconomics.com/news/2009-11-11_01.asp
