  • Publication number: 20240062331
    Abstract: Systems/techniques that facilitate deep learning robustness against display field of view (DFOV) variations are provided. In various embodiments, a system can access a deep learning neural network and a medical image. In various aspects, a first DFOV, and thus a first spatial resolution, on which the deep learning neural network is trained can fail to match a second DFOV, and thus a second spatial resolution, exhibited by the medical image. In various instances, the system can execute the deep learning neural network on a resampled version of the medical image, where the resampled version of the medical image can exhibit the first DFOV and thus the first spatial resolution. In various cases, the system can generate the resampled version of the medical image by up-sampling or down-sampling the medical image until it exhibits the first DFOV and thus the first spatial resolution.

  • Publication number: 20230286505
    Abstract: A driving assistance apparatus includes an on-vehicle sensor and a driving assistance ECU. The ECU detects presence of a preceding vehicle traveling immediately forward of an own vehicle, on the basis of pieces of information from the sensor, chooses the preceding vehicle as a vehicle to follow, and controls a drive apparatus, a braking apparatus, and a steering apparatus such that the own vehicle follows the vehicle to follow. When the own vehicle follows a first vehicle chosen as the vehicle to follow and the speed of the own vehicle or the first vehicle is a predetermined threshold speed or lower, upon determination that the own vehicle can follow a second vehicle traveling faster than the own vehicle in a second lane located adjacent to a first lane in which the own vehicle is traveling, the ECU changes the vehicle to follow from the first vehicle to the second vehicle.

    Abstract: Various methods and systems are provided for computed tomography imaging. In one embodiment, a method includes acquiring, with an x-ray detector and an x-ray source coupled to a gantry, a three-dimensional image volume of a subject while the subject moves through a bore of the gantry and the gantry rotates the x-ray detector and the x-ray source around the subject, inputting the three-dimensional image volume to a trained deep neural network to generate a corrected three-dimensional image volume with a reduction in aliasing artifacts present in the three-dimensional image volume, and outputting the corrected three-dimensional image volume. In this way, aliasing artifacts caused by sub-sampling may be removed from computed tomography images while preserving details, texture, and sharpness in the computed tomography images.
