Dual energy basis decomposition techniques apply to single projection radiographic imaging. The high and low energy images are non-linearly transformed to generate two energy-independent images characterizing the integrated Compton/photoelectric attenuation components. Characteristic linear combinations of these two basis images identify unknown materials,(More)
Digital subtraction and an experimental system for line-scanned radiography were used to image the bifurcations of the carotid arteries. The subtracted images were obtained before and after injections of contrast media. The anatomy of the extracranial carotid arteries was demonstrated in most patients, and verified by selective catheter arteriograms.(More)
The use of Gd-DTPA in nondegenerative spinal lesions is described. Thirty consecutive patients were examined by MR with and without Gd-DTPA. The information obtained with unenhanced T1- and T2-weighted spin-echo images was compared with that obtained with Gd-DTPA T1-weighted images. The results showed that, according to the criteria used, more information(More)
Many applications of diagnostic cross sectional imaging require that images be reconstructed from a limited number of projections (limited angle). Convolution back projection has been unsuitable in these applications. Methods for reconstruction based on stochastic estimation theory, such as the minimum variance estimator, use a discrete linear measurement(More)
Alteration of the diaphragmatic contour should be added to the list of radiographic signs of traumatic diaphragmatic hernia (TDH). Such changes may sometimes be appreciated prior to gross herniation of abdominal viscera into the hemithorax. Alterations of the hemidiaphragmatic contour are non-specific, but suggestive of TDH in the appropriate clinical(More)
