The use of a convolution-filtering method to estimate the scatter distribution in images acquired with a digital subtraction angiography (DSA) imaging system has been studied. Investigation of more than 175 convolution kernels applied to images of anthropomorphic head, chest, and pelvic phantoms using 15-, 25-, and 36-cm fields of view (digitized onto a 512(More)
In this paper we deal with two types of spiral scanners; one is a single-slice spiral scanner, while the other employs dual-slice technology into spiral scanning. Physical performance parameters, including image noise, contrast resolution, spatial resolution (transversal and longitudinal), and radiation exposure are measured. Computer simulations based on(More)
We demonstrate a laser-based adaptive ultrasonic homodyne receiver using dynamic holography in AlGaAs/GaAs photorefractive multiple quantum wells. The dynamic hologram acts as an adaptive beamsplitter that compensates wavefront distortions in the presence of speckle and requires no path-length stabilization. The photorefractive quantum wells have the unique(More)
A preliminary study showed that encouraging laboratory results reported previously using tomographic digital subtraction angiography (DSA) can be transferred to clinical application for neurovascular imaging. Tomography may show cervical carotid disease more clearly than standard DSA images, and it eliminates the interference caused by overlapping vessels.(More)
An electronic scanning-slit technology is under development which involves replacing paired fore and aft slits for scatter rejection with only one fore slit. As the slit scans across the portion of the patient to be imaged, pulsed x-ray exposures produce images of the slit in successive positions, which are digitized and stored in computer memory.

A computerized fluoroscopic apparatus developed by members of the University of Wisconsin Medical Physics Section was used for 12 months to perform intravenous video arteriography. In previous papers, the apparatus was described and its use was illustrated for performing time subtraction intravenous video arteriography of the extracranial carotid arteries,(More)
As a trial project, the Indiana University Department of Radiology has develop[ed a low-cost manner of distributing radiological images throughout a medical environment using the World Wide Web (WWW). The interface requires the user to have a WWW-browser client, such as Netscape, running on UNIX, PC, or Macintosh platforms. A forms-based interface allows(More)
Procedural control during therapeutic neuroradiologic procedures is generally based on repeated angiograms to assess the degree to which embolization has reduced abnormal blood flow. Due to the complex craniofacial skeletal anatomy that is superimposed over lesions in this area, subtraction studies are usually required to see the vessels and visualize a(More)
