  • Publication number: 20200113534
    Abstract: Evaluating a reliability of a computed tomography (CT) volume image includes acquiring a first CT volume image and a modified CT volume image that are reconstructed from scanned projection images. From the first CT volume image and the modified CT volume image, digitally reconstructed X-ray images are then calculated. A respective similarity with a corresponding one of the scanned projection images is then determined. Based on a comparison of these similarities with one another, a reliability of the CT volume images is then evaluated.

  • Publication number: 20200085400
    Abstract: An X-ray device has an X-ray detector allocated to an X-ray tube assembly and configured as a flat panel detector, in which charges, accumulated over an integration period, of individual detector pixels are read out in a readout period following on from the integration period. In order to acquire the X-ray images, a trigger signal is captured, and if a trigger condition evaluating the trigger signal is satisfied, the acquisition of one of the X-ray images takes place using an integration period with a predetermined default length that is the same for all X-ray images. During the acquisition of the time series, in addition to the trigger condition, a readout condition that describes the anticipated imminence of the satisfaction of the trigger condition within a default period that is greater than or equal to the predetermined default length and evaluates the trigger signal is also monitored.

  • Publication number: 20200038933
    Abstract: In a method for producing a component by further forming of a preformed contour of a blank, the blank which has previously been cut to size at ambient temperature from a strip or a metal sheet undergoes after optional further manufacturing steps carried out at ambient temperature, e.g. punching or cutting operations to realize recesses or openings, in selected edge regions that have been strain hardened by the punching or cutting operations to obtain a preformed contour a first forming operation at ambient temperature. The edge regions intended to undergo the forming operation or at least the edge regions that have undergone the first forming operation are heated to a temperature of at least 600° C. for maximal 10 seconds. After the heat treatment, the edge regions undergo at any time a second forming operation or further forming operations at ambient temperature with respectively preceding heat treatments.
