Recently, a variety of medical imaging systems have been introduced involving selective imaging using multiple measurements. In these systems a number of independent measurements, taken at different times and/or using different X-ray energies, are combined to form a selective image. A prime example is the selective imaging of iodine for vessel imaging. These systems, involving subtraction operations, result in a degradation of the SNR, as compared to the individual measurements. In this… CONTINUE READING
