Summer Heats Up at AAPM 2011, including 11 I-STAR Presentations

Eleven I-STAR presentations at AAPM 2011 in Vancouver, British Columbia, run the gamut in imaging research, including fundamental imaging physics, 3D image reconstruction, diagnostic imaging, and image-guided surgery:— “Fundamentals of 3D Image Reconstruction” (Jeff Siewerdsen)— “Image Guidance in Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic … Continue reading

“KCR” Technique Allows Imaging in the Presence of Implants

Dr. Web Stayman will present a new 3D image reconstruction technique (referred to as Known-Component Reconstruction, KCR) at The Fully 3D Meeting in Potsdam, July 11-15. The KCR algorithm allows nearly artifact-free imaging in the presence of metallic implants, whereas conventional reconstruction methods … Continue reading
