System and Method of Ultralow-dose Computed Tomography Image Reconstruction for Early Lung Cancer Screening

Use of systems to create a higher quality, more accurate image Background: Computer tomography (CT) currently operates at high X-ray exposure, in terms of high X-ray flux. These images provide key details into warning such as potential lung cancer in smoking patients, or even possible birth defects in children. However, there are still challenges in obtaining quality radiological images while using lower and therefore, safer levels of radiation. Thus, it may be beneficial to provide an exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium for ultralow dose computed tomography (ULDCT) image reconstruction with pre-log shifted-Poisson model, and a texture-based MRF prior which can overcome at least some of the deficiencies. Technology Overview: The exemplary system, method and computer-accessible medium can provide ULDCT that can achieve the same detection rate of current systems with substantially lower radiation exposure than typical CT systems. Advantages: Less Harmful for Neighboring Cells, More Efficient Applications: CT, Radiation, Cancer, Medical, Biomedical Engineering, Biomedical Devices, Clinical, Hospital, Research, Testing.
