Extremities CT Scanner at BMES

October 22, 2010

At the annual meting of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) in Austin TX, Yifu Ding presented the latest research in development of a dedicated cone-beam CT scanner for imaging of extremities. The scanner will provide high-resolution images with soft-tissue visibility for MSK radiology and orthopaedics. Trials are scheduled to begin at Hopkins in 2011. Watch Yifu’s interview online on YouTube.
