Computed Tomography (CT)

Computed tomography (CT) systems use a series of X-ray images to create an image volume dataset with slices that can be manipulated on any plane using advanced visualization software. The section includes computed tomography scanners, CT contrast agents, CT angiography (CTA and CCTA), CT perfusion, spectral CT (dual-source CT), and iterative reconstruction dose reduction software.

The researchers used high resolution cross-sectional imaging with CT or MRI to assess 225 men with abdominal aortic aneurysm. Follow-up lasted, on average, more than three years.  Slightly more than half of patients had an intraluminal thrombus. The aneurysms of those with intraluminal thrombus were larger at baseline and grew by a rate of 2 mm per year, twice as fast as the 1 mm per year growth rate in people without intraluminal thrombus.

This is work-in-progress artificial intelligence app on Fujifilm's mobile digital radiography system to immediately detect pneumothorax (a collapsed lung), The AI highlights the area of interest to show the location to the technologist and attending physician in a unit before the image is even uploaded to the PACS for a read by a radiologist. The technology also can flag the study for an immediate read in the PACS worklist for confirmation by a human. This technology is from a third-party and will be offered on Fujifilm's REiLI AI platform.
