Barco Unveils 3D Reconstruction System for Cone-beam CT Scanners

November 1, 2007 - Barco displayed its new 3D reconstruction system, utilizing Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) technology to reportedly improve the speed and accuracy of CT image acquisition, at ASTRO 2007.

The 3D reconstruction product, named TDRS-7101, utilizes the computing power of Barco’s MXRT-7100 graphics board to deliver real-time reconstructions of raw CT images with high image quality. In doing so, it reportedly improves the performance of cone-beam CT acquisition systems used for dental imaging, radiation oncology and intra-operative imaging.

Barco’s TDRS-7101 solution also offers 3D rendering based on the company’s 3D advanced visualization technology. To further reduce overall system cost, the versatile system can also replace the standard display controller used to display the images.

The package includes a high-performance graphics board, a custom Barco driver and the complete SDK (software development kit). This bundle allows OEM partners to rapidly and easily integrate 3D reconstruction into their own applications, according to Barco.
