ContextVision, Mass Gen Launch 3D CT, MR Study

November 11, 2009 – In a collaborative study between ContextVision AB, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), the Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization (CMIV) and SharpView AB, researchers will investigate advanced 3D image filtering as a means of increasing patient throughput and improving image quality in MRI and further enabling dose reduction in CT.

Researchers will compare advanced 3D techniques with 2D filters. ContextVision and its partner company SharpView have previously worked with CMIV at Linköping University, Sweden, to pioneer advances in image enhancement, adaptive filtration and 3D filtration, leading to lower-dose CT and faster MRI procedures with better image quality.

The new study will build upon existing research collaboration among the organizations, with MGH’s Mannudeep Kalra, M.D., as principal investigator. The study aims to show that 3D filtering can allow hospitals and practitioners to increase patient throughput for MRI, enabling one to two additional patient appointments per day. For CT, the study will show that 3D image filtering can enable high-quality images at lower doses, increasing safety for patients and technicians.
Researchers hope new 3D algorithms from the companies will produce new techniques in both CT dose reduction and MRI patient throughput.
