Carestream Content to be Presented in Four Scientific Sessions at RSNA 2015
Reading Time: 2 minutes read
The RSNA annual meeting brings about excitement each year as we get to learn about the latest research, advancements, and trends happening in medical imaging.
Carestream will participate in four scientific sessions at RSNA 2015. Each one will showcase research conducted in collaboration with some of the top medical institutions in North America. These include Johns Hopkins University, Penn State’s Milton S. Hershey Medical Center, University of Michigan’s Medical School, and Toronto General Hospital.
The details for each presentation are provided below:
- Scientists from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Carestream will present a paper entitled “Development of a Dedicated Cone-Beam CT System for Imaging of Intracranial Hemorrhage,” on Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 11:00-11:10 am (Room S403B). This paper reports that a CBCT head scanner designed according to task-based performance optimization and physical experimentation exhibited image quality suitable for detecting intracranial hemorrhages. A scanner prototype is being developed for use in clinical studies.
- Lynn La Pietra from Carestream is presenting a scientific poster entitled “Pediatric Fracture Detection Study: A Task-Based Observer Study Evaluating Enhanced Image Presentation and Potential Dose Reduction,” on Thursday, Dec. 3, from 12:15-12:45 pm in Learning Center, Hall D. This work was conducted in collaboration with researchers from the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. This poster describes use of digital radiography (DR) to capture diagnostic-quality pediatric images using exposures that can be equivalent to 720 film-screen exposures. Enhanced image processing may be used to mitigate noise and improve the visibility of bone disruptions in these images.
- Scientists from University of Michigan Medical School and Carestream will present a scientific poster entitled “The Complementary Roles of Computer-Aided Diagnosis and Quantitative Image Analysis: Similarities and Differences in Assessment, Quality Assurance and Training.” Attendees can meet with researchers to discuss the poster from 12:15-1:15 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 30, Tuesday, Dec. 1, and Wednesday, Dec. 2 in Learning Center, Hall D. This poster reviews the methods discussed by the Computer Aided Detection in Diagnostic Imaging Subcommittee (CADSC) for assessment, quality assurance, and user training in CAD and highlights parallels and distinctions between CAD and Quantitative Image Analysis.
- Scientists from Toronto General Hospital and Carestream created a scientific poster entitled “Dual-Energy Imaging and Digital Tomosynthesis: Innovative X-ray Based Imaging Technologies for Rapid and Accurate Diagnosis of Thoracic Disease in Critically Ill Patients.” The poster reviews recent advances in dual-energy imaging and digital tomosynthesis and discusses how a system with both technologies could deliver advanced options for chest imaging. It will be displayed on monitors in Learning Center, Hall D.
