Service Detail from SPIE - Education

Sunday 12 February 2017
8:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Orlando, Florida, United States

This course provides attendees with an advanced knowledge of spectral CT imaging. The course focuses on the properties of a spectral CT measurement and the main applications in spectral CT reconstruction and spectral CT image postprocessing. Many clinical examples of spectral CT imaging applications are provided to illustrate the diagnostic outcome of this technique.

Learning Outcomes

  • describe the system properties of a spectral CT system
  • compare different system approaches to acquire spectral CT data, such as dual source CT, kV switching and energy-resolving detectors
  • summarize various algorithms for spectral CT reconstructions and spectral CT image postprocessing
  • list the relevant clinical applications of spectral CT
  • explain the main challenges of spectral CT techniques
