Title (EN) CT SYSTEM WITH SYNTHETIC VIEW GENERATION
(FR) SYSTEME DE TOMODENSITOMETRIE A GENERATION DE VUE SYNTHETIQUE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A CT scanner system (10) provides projection-like images of a patient volume. After a CT scan is obtained and a three-dimensional model of the patient (P) is created, any synthetic view can be generated by choosing any array of projection lines, e.g. between a point and a surface (a flat plane, curved plane, spherical, etc.) or between two surfaces (parallel or not) and summing across the projection lines. The synthetic projections can mimic certain traditional views, such as a ceph scan, Water's view, Caldwell's projection, etc. or can provide a new view that is impossible or impractical with traditional x-ray equipment, such as a perfect parallel projection, or a projection that does not pass all the way through the patient.
(FR)L'invention concerne un système de tomodensitométrie qui permet d'obtenir des images de type projections du volume d'un patient. Après obtention d'un tomodensitogramme et création d'un modèle tridimensionnel du patient, toute vue synthétique peut être générée par sélection d'un quelconque réseau de lignes de projection, par exemple entre un point et une surface (de type plane, incurvée, sphérique, etc.) ou entre deux surfaces (parallèles ou pas) et par regroupement sur les lignes de projection. Les projections synthétiques peuvent reproduire certaines vues classiques, de type céphalométriques, vues de Water, projections de Caldwell, etc., ou permettent d'obtenir une nouvelle vue impossible ou difficile à obtenir avec un équipement de rayons X classique, de type projection parallèle parfaite, ou une projection qui ne passe pas sur toute la surface du corps du patient.
