Carestream Health Inc. and Siewerdsen | Date: 2017-03-15

An apparatus for cone beam computed tomography of an extremity has a digital radiation detector and a first device to move the detector along a circular detector path extending so that the detector moves both at least partially around a first extremity of the patient and between the first extremity and a second, adjacent extremity. The detector path has radius R1 sufficient to position the extremity approximately centered in the detector path. There is a radiation source with a second device to move the source along a concentric circular source path having a radius R2 greater than radius R1, radius R2 sufficiently long to allow adequate radiation exposure of the first extremity for an image capture by the detector. A first circumferential gap in the source path allows the second extremity to be positioned in the first circumferential gap during image capture.

A method displays, in response to a user selection of a first viewing mode, an ultrasound image in grayscale and determines a region of interest within the displayed grayscale ultrasound image. In response to an operator instruction to switch to a second viewing mode that is different from the first viewing mode, a modified ultrasound image is generated comprising the region of interest. The method displays the modified ultrasound image including the region of interest, wherein one or more portions of the modified image are highlighted.

A method for scattered radiation correction acquires radiographic projection image data for a first portion of a subject that lies within a field of view of an imaging apparatus and characterizes the surface contour of the subject that includes at least a second portion of the subject that lies outside the field of view of the imaging apparatus. The surface contour of the subject is characterized according to the reflectance images. The surface contour characterization is registered to the field of view. Scattered radiation is estimated according to the projection image data and the surface contour characterization. The acquired radiographic projection image data is updated according to the estimated scattered radiation. An image of the field of view is displayed according to the conditioned acquired radiographic projection image data.

A thermally developable material comprising a support and having thereon at least one thermally developable imaging layers comprising in reactive association at least one non-photosensitive source of reducible silver ions, at least one reducing agent for said reducible ions, at least one binder comprising vinyl butyral repeat units and vinyl alcohol repeat units, and at least one crosslinker comprising an isocyanate group, where the thermally developable material has a composition that exhibits an equivalent weight ratio of the vinyl alcohol repeat units in the at least one binder to the isocyanate groups in the at least one crosslinker of at least 75.

A boom has an x-ray head attached to one end thereof and the x-ray head has an x-ray source disposed therein. In a docked position of the boom, the x-ray source is disabled. In a deployed position, the x-ray source is enabled. A handle attached to the x-ray head is movable into at least two different positions. A first one of the positions disables the x-ray source while a second one of the positions enables the x-ray source. The handle extends a preselected distance from the x-ray source such that the handle maintains at least the preselected distance between the x-ray source and a subject to be exposed thereby.

A photostimulable plate reading device (10) including at least one photostimulable plate (12) carrying image data and having two opposite surfaces, an illuminator (20) for homogeneously illuminating a first one of the two opposite surfaces of the at least one photostimulable plate (12) with light emitted in a first wavelength range, the illumination causing the at least one photostimulable plate both to emit light in a second wavelength range by photostimulated luminescence and to scatter light in the first wavelength range; a filter (22) for preventing the light scattered in the first wavelength range from passing and for allowing the light emitted in the second wavelength range to pass, the filter facing a second one of the two opposite surfaces of the at least one photostimulable plate (12); and a detector (24) composed of a two dimensional array of pixels for detecting the light allowed to pass and for obtaining image data therefrom.

A method for 3-D cephalometric analysis of a patient, executed at least in part on a computer processor, displays reconstructed volume image data from a computed tomographic scan of a patients head from at least a first 2-D view and accepts an operator instruction that positions and displays at least one reference mark on the at least the first displayed 2-D view. One or more dentition elements within the mouth of the patient are segmented and one or more cephalometric parameters computed for the patient according to the at least one reference mark and the one or more segmented dentition elements. One or more results generated from analysis of the one or more computed cephalometric parameters are displayed.
