Breast cancer diagnosis may be improved by optical fluorescence imaging techniques in the near-infrared wavelength range. We have shown that the recently proposed space-space MUSIC (multiple signal classification) algorithm allows the 3-D localization of focal fluorophore-tagged lesions in a turbid medium from 2-D fluorescence data obtained from laser(More)
Technical quality assurance (QA) is one of the key issues in breast cancer screening protocols. For this QA task, three different methods are commonly used to assess image quality. The European protocol suggests a contrast-detail phantom (e.g. the CDMAM phantom), while in North America the American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation phantom is(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate a prototype correction algorithm to reduce metal artefacts in flat detector computed tomography (FDCT) of scaphoid fixation screws. FDCT has gained interest in imaging small anatomic structures of the appendicular skeleton. Angiographic C-arm systems with flat detectors allow fluoroscopy and FDCT imaging in a one-stop(More)
The authors investigated the influence of human body inhomogeneities such as the lungs, blood masses and the skeletal muscle layer on the electrical body surface potential and the magnetic field. The surface potentials and magnetic fields are calculated using a boundary element method. As a rule the blood masses have a large influence on both potential and(More)
INTRODUCTION Following complicated endovascular or microsurgical treatments, assessment of radiographic outcome can be challenging due to device resolution and metallic artifact. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional angiography can reveal information about flow and aneurysm obliteration, but may be limited by beam hardening, overlapping vessels, and image(More)
