Technology Delivers Descriptions Via Algorithms, Methods


March 21, 2007

Shorter scanning time and clinically diagnostic images reportedly may be obtained with UltraSPECT Wide Beam Reconstruction (WBR) technology, a resolution recovery reconstruction method.

A technology that delivers a description of the physical model via mathematical algorithms and methods, WBR has a substantial impact on the system’s resolution, said the company. It eliminates the LSF (Line Spread Function) limitation of current SPECT systems, improving the system’s resolution. Its algorithm can incorporate various physical effects such as scattering, attenuation and the marginal penetration through the collimator septa, according to the company.
