PURPOSE This work proposes a new method of building 3D models of microcalcification clusters and describes the validation of their realistic appearance when simulated into 2D digital mammograms and into breast tomosynthesis images. METHODS A micro-CT unit was used to scan 23 breast biopsy specimens of microcalcification clusters with malignant and benign(More)
Accurate reconstruction of SPECT images is hampered by four nonlinear effects in the acquisition process: attenuation, scatter, collimator acceptance angle, and statistical noise. A good mathematical description of these effects is obviously crucial for the reconstruction. Poisson noise, attenuation, and collimator acceptance angle are relatively easy to(More)
PURPOSE To develop a fully automated, accurate and robust segmentation technique for dental implants on cone-beam CT (CBCT) images. METHODS A head-size cylindrical polymethyl methacrylate phantom was used, containing titanium rods of 5.15 mm diameter. The phantom was scanned on 17 CBCT devices, using a total of 39 exposure protocols. Images were manually(More)
