New Image Analysis Software Works to Improve Data Accuracy

April 11, 2008 – Carestream released KODAK Molecular Imaging Software 5.0 designed to improve data accuracy, workflow and productivity when analyzing optical molecular images.

The new software can correct spatial nonuniformity across the image field, delivering up to a 30-fold improvement in field uniformity, according to the company. Encompassing new features for both in vitro and in vivo applications, the software allows for migration between multiple types of experiments and applications. It can also perform digital capture and analysis for a wide range of optical molecular imaging applications, such as electrophoresis gels, protein blots, plate assays and small animal (in vivo) studies, among others.

The software also includes enhancements to image display, printing, region of interest and annotations. While designed to support KODAK Molecular Imaging Systems, KODAK Molecular Imaging Software 5.0 can also analyze images acquired using any TWAIN scanner or device. It can be used to analyze TIFF or JPEG images from a variety of other imaging systems including video systems and phosphor imagers. Once images are acquired, users can document and analyze images with floating point accuracy; prepare results for publication and presentation; print images, analysis results and annotations; maintain images, results and annotations as projects; and manage projects using a powerful database.

Users can now leverage multiple-band flat-field correction to enhance quantitation of epi-fluorescence imaging. This technique corrects macroscopic epi-fluorescence measurements across an image field against system spatial nonuniformity for any combination of excitation and detection wavelength bands between the near ultraviolet and near infrared, according to Carestream. The efficiency of the fluorescence return reportedly enables the efficient collection and archiving of extensive libraries of correction files. New correction options for emission filter transmission efficiency and illumination variation are also available.

A new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI. Shown here are MR images reconstructed from the same data with conventional approaches, at left, and AUTOMAP, at right. Athinoula A.
