Explore the possibilities of photon counting CT with deep silicon*
(60 min) Clinicians rely on the information they receive from medical images – like those from a CT – to help them correctly diagnose patients, monitor cases, and make treatment decisions. It has been evident for decades that CT would benefit greatly from energy-discriminating photon counting detectors. The challenge has been developing detectors that can handle the very high photon flux from high-power X-ray tubes while delivering good energy resolution and maintaining or improving spatial resolution. Now, using deep silicon detectors, GE HealthCare has identified an optimal solution for photon counting CT to accommodate the much higher count-rate demands of CT imaging.
