Spectral CT and Deep Learning: Challenges and Opportunities in Preclinical Imaging
Date: March 17, 2023 12-1 PM Eastern time
Speakers: Cristian Badea, PhD
The talk discusses spectral CT and its associated concepts, including dual energy CT that uses energy integrating detectors and multi-energy photon counting CT. We explore the potential of deep learning to enhance spectral CT performance by reducing noise, performing ring corrections, material decomposition, and aiding in image reconstruction. We also showcase the various preclinical applications of spectral CT in cancer and cardiac imaging.
