  • Publication number: 20190320994
    Abstract: A system and method for calibrating an X-ray tube is provided in which the X-ray tube includes an electronic storage medium associated with the X-ray tube on which calibration information for the X-ray tube is stored. The calibration information includes operating parameters for the focusing elements of the X-ray tube for desired focal spots, tolerance limits for variations in the focal spots and a number of gradient coefficient values corresponding to certain modulation transfer functions (MTF) for the X-ray tube that the imaging system can employ in an iterative manner to correct the operating parameters of the focusing elements to achieve the desired focal spot. This automatic iterative process significantly reduces the time required for the calibration of the X-ray tube. The system and method also employs scan sequencing to minimize the heat generated enabling the scans to be completed in a shorter amount of time than prior calibration processes.

  • Patent number: 9710918
    Abstract: A system and method for an image reconstruction user interface is provided. An imaging system may be used to scan a subject and provide reconstructed images of the subject. Reconstructed images may be output to a display, printer, network, and/or memory storage device. To view information and select options for image reconstruction, a visualization system and method is utilized.

  • Patent number: 8115784
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer instructions for displaying multi-energy data are provided. Certain methods include: receiving multi-energy data from an operably connected data source; displaying the multi-energy data as an image via a graphical user interface; selecting a region of interest in the displayed image; and displaying information regarding the region of interest via the graphical user interface. Certain methods include: (1) displaying a graph that includes an attenuation line depicting radiodensity versus energy level; (2) displaying a material density graph of a region of interest and/or of results of segmenting a region of interest; and/or (3) displaying information in a window configured to be movable about an interface. Certain methods include: receiving multi-energy data from an operably connected data source; and displaying the multi-energy data as a fused image via a graphical user interface.

  • Publication number: 20090129539
    Abstract: A method of diagnostic imaging is disclosed herein. The method includes acquiring CT projection data at a first x-ray energy level and a second x-ray energy level. The method includes reconstructing a first image pair using a basis material decomposition algorithm and the CT projection data. The method includes displaying a first image from the first image pair. The method includes transforming the first image pair into a second image using image data from the first image pair. The method also includes displaying a second image. A CT system is also disclosed.
