Image interpolation techniques often are required in medical imaging for image generation (e.g., discrete back projection for inverse Radon transform) and processing such as compression or resampling. Since the ideal interpolation function spatially is unlimited, several interpolation kernels of finite size have been introduced. This paper compares 1) truncated and windowed sine; 2) nearest neighb... View full abstract»

The authors study the application of Fourier rebinning methods to dual-planar cone-beam SPECT. Dual-planar cone-beam SPECT involves the use of a pair of dissimilar cone-beam collimators on a dual-camera SPECT system. Each collimator has its focus in a different axial plane. While dual-planar data is best reconstructed with fully three-dimensional (3-D) iterative methods, these methods are slow and... View full abstract»

With the increased interest in computer-aided image analysis methods, there is a greater need for objective methods of algorithm evaluation. Validation of in vivo MRI studies is complicated by a lack of reference data and the difficulty of constructing anatomically realistic physical phantoms. The authors present here an extensible MRI simulator that efficiently generates realistic three-dimension... View full abstract»
Models for the comparative equivalence of scattering properties of elemental filters used in diagnostic radiologyPublication Year: 1999, Page(s):1098 - 1107
Cited by: Papers (1)
While the equivalence of different filter materials commonly considered useful in diagnostic radiology can be obtained in terms of the overall transmitted primary photons, the scattering characteristics are not the same. In this work, comparative models that relate the scattered photons produced from one filter material with those from another have been developed. The comparison of the results of ...

A method for reconstructing the constitutive parameters of two-dimensional (2-D) penetrable scatterers from scattered field measurements is presented. This method is based on the differential formulation of the forward scattering problem, which is solved by applying the finite-element method (FEM). Given a set of scattered field measurements, the objective is to minimize a cost function which cons... View full abstract»
Aims & Scope
IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging (T-MI) encourages the submission of manuscripts on imaging of body structure, morphology and function, including cell and molecular imaging and all forms of microscopy. The journal publishes original contributions on medical imaging achieved by modalities including ultrasound, x-rays, magnetic resonance, radionuclides, microwaves, and optical methods. Contributions describing novel acquisition techniques, medical image processing and analysis, visualization and performance, pattern recognition, machine learning, and related methods are encouraged. Studies involving highly technical perspectives are most welcome.
The focus of the journal is on unifying the sciences of medicine, biology, and imaging. It emphasizes the common ground where instrumentation, hardware, software, mathematics, physics, biology, and medicine interact through new analysis methods. Strong application papers that describe novel methods are particularly encouraged. Papers describing important applications based on medically adopted and/or established methods without significant innovation in methodology will be directed to other journals.
To qualify for publication, submitted manuscripts must be previously unpublished and must not be under consideration elsewhere. The Editor-in-Chief and an Associate Editor will perform a quick review of each manuscript to evaluate the manuscript in terms of novelty, quality and appropriateness and may return the manuscript immediately if it does not meet minimum standards of quality, originality, and scope. Manuscripts will ONLY be accepted in electronic format through ScholarOne Manuscripts. Please go to the ScholarOne Manuscripts website at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tmi-ieee or to the TMI website http://www.ieee-tmi.org/ to find instructions to electronically submit your manuscript. Do not send original submissions or revisions directly to the Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editors.
