Canon Medical’s deep learning reconstruction (DLR) technology development for medical imaging, Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE), is now available for PET.
AiCE on the Cartesion Prime aims to help clinicians achieve PET images with improved image quality under a wide variety of imaging conditions.
AiCE yields superior performance by better differentiating signal from noise and generating consistent high-quality images.
AiCE for PET features
To aid in fast and confident clinical results, compared to Gaussian filtering, AiCE DLR can provide superior performance in:
45% improved SNR1
82.9% improvement in contrast at the same noise level1
75% reduction in counts while preserving SNR2
Preservation of quantification
AiCE did not change overall quantification of images compared to OSEM reconstruction
1 as compared to OSEM + Gaussian Post Filtering
2 as compared to OSEM + Gaussian Post Filtering at 100% counts or without scan duration reduction
* Based on bench test results (10 mm sphere)
