CTI presents photon-counting breast CT at RSNA 2015 with great success

2015/12/23, CT Imaging GmbH
RSNA2015 Photon-counting Breast CT
Diagnostic procedures for early and reliable diagnosis of breast cancer are still insufficient today in one or several regards.
CT of the breast shall overcome this situation and, in particular, increase sensitivity and specificity by offering the following features in combinaton:
  • Superposition-free imaging with very high spatial resolution of 100 μm or better in all three spatial dimensions
  • Dose levels low enough to conform with mammographic screening regulations
  • Dynamic imaging with contrast medium application when indicated

CT pioneers spell out how to reduce patients' anxiety over dose

2015/02/08, AuntMinnieEurope

Few people have had greater individual impact on the evolution of CT scanners than Dr. Willi Kalender, PhD, the pioneer of spiral systems. As the director of the Institute of Medical Physics at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany, he is currently overseeing projects relating to CT imaging of the heart, micro-CT, and image-based navigated interventions.

CTDI and Patient Dose: A European Perspective

2013/07/29 - 2013/08/02, The American Association of Physicists in Medicine Annual Meeting, Charlotte, NC (USA)

Dose in CT has been a dominant topic in Medical Physics for at least a decade. This was for good reason since increasing use of CT necessarily led to an increase of cumulative dose to the population and inappropriate use of CT in some cases led to an unnecessarily high exposure of patients with subsequent coverage in the U.S. media.

Effect of shaped filter design on dose and image quality in breast CT

2013/06/21, Phys Med Biol. 58 (13): 4205-23

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of shaped filters specifically designed for dedicated breast computed tomography (CT) scanners on dose and image quality. Optimization of filter shape and material in fan direction was performed using two different design methods, one aiming at homogeneous noise distributions in the CT images and the other aiming at a uniform dose distribution in the breast.

CT pioneers spell out how to reduce patients' anxiety over dose

2013/03/09, AuntMinnieEurope, ECR TODAY 2013

Justification is radiology's trump card in the increasingly tough battle to win back public confidence and reassure patients over the benefits of CT. That was certainly the strong impression given by two opinion leaders at Friday's special focus session at ECR 2013.

Prof. Dr. Willi Kalender on why it is so important to focus on the quality of service in radiology

2013/03/09, ECR 2013, Youtube

In trying to reduce dose, one should never accept any reduction in image quality. Prof. Dr. Kalender feels it is not so much about low dose, than about right dose.
