G. respiratory motion during a cardiac scan). Another example for which interactive imaging is essential is tracking of catheters and guidewires during interventions. An example of a procedure that found its way from a research tool into clinical application is diffusion-weighted MR imaging. Perhaps the first clinical application of DWI was reported 1996, showing diffusion deficit in the presence of a stroke40. Applications of DWI have developed also into MR tractography, which connects pixels in relation to the anisotropy of the diffusion tensor.

Diagnostic Imaging 17 • Speed-up of acquisition towards 4D (3D+T) images. • From anatomical to functional to molecular imaging. The main driver behind this development (or better called enabler) is the exponential growth in performance of silicon devices, both in the area of digital logic as well as processing units. g. Moore’s law7, which is depicted in Figure 2-1. Figure 2-1. ). The general trends in imaging technology, as described above, drive the development of the established imaging modalities.

The resulting slice image had a matrix of 802 pixels and a contrast resolution of 8 Bit. A picture of one of these first CT systems is shown in Figure 2-3. Modern CT systems acquire and reconstruct image matrices up to 10242 pixels, at a rate of 40 slices per second (for a 5122 matrix). The contrast resolution of these images is 18 Bit. Reconstruction can be synchronized to breathing and/or cardiac motion, in order to compensate for motion artifacts. 4 seconds per rotation) and by adding more and more detector lines for parallel image acquisition.
