    The fan-beam tomographic reconstruction formulas that have previously appeared in the literature have been restricted to the case where the source points are situated on a circle. This paper extends the fan-beam formula to "curves of source points" other than a circle of source points (e.g., a straight line or a hexagon). In the derivation new mathematical techniques are presented. For both the st... View full abstract»

    Myocardial tissue characterization using ultrasound is a growing area of investigation which attempts to evaluate the structure of the myocardium by analysis of ultrasound signals. Our laboratory has been exploring the use of texture analysis for the determination of myocardial tissue properties from two-dimensional echocardiographic images. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that echo... View full abstract»

    Nuclear magnet resonance (NMR) imaging in the presence of large static field nonuniformity is presented. The method involves three steps: field mapping, imaging by a conventional method, and image restoration from nonuniform field influence. Two-dimensional experiments are performed to demonstrate effectiveness of this method, as well as to clarify practical problems in employing the method. Exper... View full abstract»

  • A Fast Sinc Function Gridding Algorithm for Fourier Inversion in Computer Tomography

    The Fourier inversion method for reconstruction of images in computerized tomography has not been widely used owing to the perceived difficulty of interpolating from polar or other measurement grids to the Cartesian grid required for fast numerical Fourier inversion. Although the Fourier inversion method is recognized as being computationally faster than the back-projection method for parallel ray... View full abstract»

    The DSR (dynamic spatial reconstructor), a multiple X-ray source scanner that generates stop action three-dimensional (3-D) images of a cylindrical volume, was used for quantitative imaging of left ventricular 3-D wall geometry and function in experimentally induced canine left ventricular myocardial infarction. Impaired regional myocardial function was induced by myocardial ischemia or infarction... View full abstract»

  • Reordering Schemes for Multiple-Rotation Fan-Beam CT Scanner

    The number of detectors in a fan-beam CT scanner can be substantially decreased if a multiple-rotation data collection mode is used to provide appropriate spatial resolution. The efficiency of multiple-rotation schemes using a detector offset combined with angular shift of the detectors in each cycle for projection space filling is examined. It is shown that in reordering into parallel projections... 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.
