  • Patent number: 10363009
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for determining a synthetic electron density map based on at least one MR image dataset and based on at least one soft tissue image structure and one bone image structure determined in the synthetic electron density map. The soft tissue image structure and the bone image structure may be compared with the corresponding structures in the MR image dataset. From a correction of the first soft tissue image structure and/or of the bone image structure is based on the comparison, a corrected synthetic electron density map is determined.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10204429
    Abstract: In a method and medical imaging apparatus for depiction of medical imaging data, medical imaging data of the examination object are acquired over a period of time, and an artifact parameter is established, which characterizes artifacts that occur as a result of breathing of the examination object during the period of time. The medical imaging data are displayed on a display screen together with a depiction of the artifact parameter.

  • Patent number: 10080538
    Abstract: A method is for provisioning quantitative CT image data acquired from a scanning field via a dual-source CT device the dual-source CT device including a first radiation source-detector system with a first capture region and a second radiation source-detector system with a second capture region. The method includes dividing the scanning field into a first subregion, representing at least a part of the intersection of the first region and the second capture region, and a second subregion, disjoint from the second region; acquiring first CT scan data from the first subregion and second CT scan data from the second subregion; reconstructing first quantitative CT image data from the first CT scan data and second quantitative CT image data from the second CT scan data; combining the first quantitative CT image data and the second quantitative CT image data to quantitative CT image data; and provisioning the quantitative CT image data.

  • Publication number: 20180096478
    Abstract: Embodiments can provide a method for atlas-based contouring, comprising constructing a relevant atlas database; selecting one or more optimal atlases from the relevant atlas database; propagating one or more atlases; fusing the one or more atlases; and assessing the quality of one or more propagated contours.

  • Publication number: 20180085080
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for determining a synthetic electron density map based on at least one MR image dataset and based on at least one soft tissue image structure and one bone image structure determined in the synthetic electron density map. The soft tissue image structure and the bone image structure may be compared with the corresponding structures in the MR image dataset. From a correction of the first soft tissue image structure and/or of the bone image structure is based on the comparison, a corrected synthetic electron density map is determined.
