Computed Tomography (CT)

Cardiac computed tomography CT systems use a series of X-ray images to create an image volume dataset that can be sliced or manipulated on any plane using advanced visualization software. This channel includes content on CT scanners, CT contrast agents, CT angiography (CTA and CCTA), CT perfusion, spectral CT (also called dual souce or dual energy CT), and interative image reconstruction software that can reduce dose and make lower-quality CT images diagnostic.

Collage depicts broad applications in machine learning or deep learning (DL) that can be applied to advanced medical imaging technologies. Size of the liver and its fat fraction — 22 percent — (top middle in collage) can be quantified automatically using an algorithm developed by Dr. Albert Hsiao and his team at the University of California San Diego. This and other information that might be mined by DL algorithms from CT and MR images could help personalize patients’ treatment. Collage provided by Albert Hsiao
