    In this paper we discuss the potentialities of a time-coded single photon emissive imaging system for thyroid tomography. We have performed three-dimensional simulation studies in order to answer two questions: 1) does this coded aperture device produce good quality reconstructions, and 2) can the reconstruction be carried out sufficiently fast on a microcomputer. Our study leads to the conclusion... View full abstract»

    PCR-I has been designed and built to demonstrate the concept of analog coding to provide high resolution positron tomographic images without interpolative motion. The instrument uses 360 bismuth germanate (BGO) detectors coupled through a lucite light pipe to 90 phototubes. The measured resolution at the center is 4.8 mm. A straightforward extension of the concept will lead to a tomograph capable ... View full abstract»

  • Performance of Positron Imaging Systems as a Function of Energy Threshold and Shielding Depth

    Publication Year: 1984, Page(s):18 - 24

    The effect of energy discrimination and shielding on positron imaging data quality was investigated using a detector pair to simulate a ring positron emission tomograph. Formulas are presented relating the sensitivity, random fraction, and scatter fraction for a detector pair to the same parameters for a ring system. Data were fitted to detector pair expressions for the variation of the above para... View full abstract»

    A multitracer digital film autoradiography (DFA) and a single-tracer multiwire proportional chamber autoradiography (MWPCA) have been developed for the simultaneous study of regional myocardial blood flow and metabolism in the canine heart. Radioactive indicators of flow (plastic microspheres), metabolism (deoxy-2-D-glucose labeled either with 14C or 3H), and flow and metabolism (201T1), were used... View full abstract»

  • A Reconstruction Algorithm from Truncated Projections

    A new tomographic reconstruction method is proposed which permits the reconstruction of a region of interest within a slice from partially truncated scanning data. This method utilizes two types of source data, namely a series of truncated projections and the outline of the object's cross section. The principle of this algorithm is to estimate the outside area of truncation in one projection from ... View full abstract»

  • A New Pulse Sequence for "Fast Recovery" Fast-Scan NMR Imaging

    This paper describes the "fast recovery" (FR) method for fast NMR imaging. The FR method combines a sequence of four RF pulses-alternating selective 90?? nutation pulses and nonselective 180?? pulses-with a gradient field pulse sequence which includes "spoiler" pulses to destroy the coherence between successive sequence cycles. We use the 2-D backprojection method of image reconstruction, but othe... 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.
