System and Methodology of Performing Ultra Low-Dose CT Image-Guided Intervention Using Previous Normal-Dose CT Scans as Prior Constraints

Algorithm to incorporate previous normal-dose CT scan as the prior constraints to reconstruct subsequent ultra low-dose CT images. Background: X-ray CT imaging in clinic, is known that the more exposure time for the patient the more harmful will be caused .Low-dose CT is desired in numerous clinical applications. Technology Overview: Low-dose CT images directly correlated with lowering the mAs parameter in data acquisition and modeling the data property for statistical image reconstructions. Advantages: Algorithm is fully automated and extremely robust. Results are outstanding in terms of low dose measure and image quality. Applications: Intellectual Property Summary: Stage of Development: Licensing Potential: We seek to develop and commercialize, by an exclusive or non-exclusive license agreement and/or sponsored research, with a company active in the area. Licensing Status: Available for License Additional Information: Radiology Image-Guided Invention, Ultra Low-Dose CT, Previous Normal-Dose Prior ,
