Canon Medical is on the forefront of Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR) development for medical imaging, as evident by the successful release of Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) for CT and MR. And now, AiCE for PET is available on Cartesion Prime to help clinicians achieve PET images with improved image quality under a wide variety of imaging conditions.
AiCE yields superior performance by better differentiating signal from noise and generating consistent high-quality images.
AiCE for PET Features:
Image Quality 45% improved SNR1
Quantification Accuracy 82.9% improvement in contrast at the same noise level1
Count Dependency 75% reduction in counts while preserving SNR2
Preservation of Quantification
AiCE did not change overall quantification of images compared to OSEM reconstruction
1 as compared to OSEM + Gaussian Post Filtering 2 as compared to OSEM + Gaussian Post Filtering at 100% counts or without scan duration reduction
