Multi-Energy data acquisition/processing

New Tube Features


Fp7 fmtxct project umce hgugm first year activity report partner fihgm

Detector Dynamic Range Expansion

Dual-Exposure technique

  • Main features

  • Two datasets acquired

    • First

      • Low SNR for dense materials

      • Detector not saturated for soft materials

    • Second

      • High SNR for dense materials

      • Detector saturated for soft materials

  • Same X-ray beam spectral properties

  • Different photon flux

How to insert the fluorophore in the phantom

How to insert the fluorophore in the phantom?

Resin vs Silicon

- Mix the fluorophore with the bulk material*

- Capillaries (diffusive-non diffusive interfaces)

- Pellets

Detector Dynamic Range Expansion

Dual-Exposure technique

  • Main features

  • X-ray tube current calculation for the second scan

    • Based on Histogran processing

    • Shift the histogram to place 75% of the total value into the High-Gain region

  • Dataset combination

    • Detector Model

    • Image combination based on a Maximum-Likelihood calculation assuming Independent Gaussian distribution.

  • i : Acquisition number

  • j : Pixel number

  • A: Current value

  • N: Noise value
