4 What is medical imaging? Medical imaging is a collection of techniques, that are developed to measure and display distribution of a physical property in living subjects, specifically in humans. Why is it useful? Medical imaging, not only provides useful information for diagnosis but also serves to assist in planning and monitoring the treatment of malignant disease. 4

5 Simplified block diagram of a Medical Imaging System 5

6 Which energy types are used for imaging? X-ray Nuclear (radio-isotope) sources, Ultrasonic waves, Magnetic fields, Electrical currents, Mechanical, Optical waves etc. 6

7 Electromagnetic spectrum 7

8 What are the physical properties of interest? X-ray absorption coefficient, Radionuclide concentration, Ultrasonic properties, Spin density and spin relaxation, Electromagnetic properties, Mechanical properties, Optical properties. 8

9 Why are we interested in these physical properties? Certain physical property may vary between different healthy tissue types, with the physiological state of a tissue type, with the pathological condition of a tissue type. 9

10 Why are there so many imaging modalities? All imaging modalities are based on the physics of the interaction of energy and matter. Different imaging modalities are based on physical interaction of different energy types with biological tissues and thus provide images of different physical properties of the tissues. 10

11 History Discovery of X-rays, 1895, Radon transform, 1917, NMR principles, 1946, Nuclear medicine scan, 1948, Ultrasound imaging, 1952, Positron tomography, 1953, Single Photon Emission CT, 1971 Development of X-ray CT, 1972, NMR Imaging, 1976, Impedance Tomography,

12 X-ray Projection Radiography p θ ( t ) β( x, y ) X-ray tube p θ ( t ) + = β( x, y )ds = β( x, y ) δ ( xcosθ + y sinθ t ) dxdy Patient Film t Radon Transform 12

13 Attenuation Coefficients for Biological Tissues at 60 kev Tissue Attenuation coefficient (cm -1 ) Blood Brain matter Water Fat Bone Air

14 Typical Chest X-ray Radiograph 14

15 X-ray tube design Cathode with focusing cup, 2 filaments (different spot sizes) Anode Tungsten, Z w = 74, T melt = 2250 ºC Embedded in copper for heat dissipation Angled (see next slide) Rotating to divert heat 15

16 X-ray tube Working Principle: Accelerated charge causes EM radiation: Cathode filament C is electrically heated (V C = ~10V / I f = ~5 A) to boil off electrons Electrons are accelerated toward the anode target (A) by applied high-voltage (V tube = kv); kinetic electron energy: K e usually rated in peak-kilo voltage kvp Typical: V tube = kvp, I tube = mA Deceleration of electrons on target creates "Bremsstrahlung" V C, I f + - C A kvp, I tube

17 X-ray tube design Tungsten Anode is desirable as: It has high melting point, Little tendency to vaporize, It is strong. 17

18 X-rays characteristics EM radiation at wavelengths kev ( nm). Diagnostic Range X-rays typically have a wavelength from 100nm 0.01nm ~1-100 kev. X-ray radiation is thought to be particles traveling at the speed of light and carrying an energy given by E=hf. (Plank constant h=4.13x10e-18 kev/hz, 1eV=1.6x10E-19Joules) These particles are called QUANTA or PHOTONS. A photon having an energy level greater than a few electron volts is capable of ionizing atoms an molecules. Ionization energy for valence electrons < ~10 ev X-rays is ionizing radiation (harmful) 18

19 Example: UV light bulb Photon energy > a few evolts may result in ionizing radiation. For a UV light bulb: l=100nm. results in f = c/l = 3x10E8 / 1x10E-7 = 3x10E15Hz. E=h f = 12eV is ionizing radiation. 19

35 Backprojection

36 Backprojection 36

37 Two basic strategies for producing an image that doesn t have the blurring seen in the preceding example: Backproject, and then perform a second, repair operation on the image to correct the blur (Backprojection Filtering algorithms), Modify the projection data in an appropriate manner, so they will produce an unblurred image, before backprojecting (Filtered backprojection algorithms). 37

38 Filtered Backprojection Backprojected image represents a blurred version of the original distribution: 1 βb x, y ) = β( x,y )** F2 r This blurring effect can be removed as, { βb( x, y )} = F { β( x,y )} ρ ( 2 β bf 1 = { ρ F { β ( x, y )}} ( x, y ) F2 2 b Filtering can be applied to projections prior to backprojection which is computationally more effective: F { p ( t )} { } 1 F ρ = p ( t )** { ρ } θ θ F1 1 38

39 Filtered Backprojection Measure projections from all possible view angles Convolve all projections with the filtering function h(t) Backproject the filtered projections 39

40 Performance of CT Spatial resolution of 1 mm. (minimal distance between two pixels which can be discriminated is 1 mm.) Contrast resolution of 1 % (i.e, pixel density which is 1% different than the background density can be discriminated.) Soft tissue contrast is low. Invasive : X-rays are harmful for living organisms i.e. contains ionizing radiation. 40

41 Nuclear Source Imaging Planar Scintigraphy : Radioisotopes (radionuclides) are injected to the body, They emit radiation which can be detected by photon detectors and the position of the isotopes can be determined, Two-dimensional representations of the projections of three-dimensional activity distributions are reconstructed. 41

42 Nuclear Source Imaging Emission Computed Tomography: is a technique to obtain cross sectional images of activity, SPECT: Single gamma ray is emitted per nuclear disintegration. PET: Two gamma rays are emitted when a positron from a nuclear disintegration annihilates in tissue. 42

44 SPECT and PET CT SPECT DUAL PET perfusion scan of heart SPECT Neuroblastoma p θ + ( t ) = A( x, y ) δ ( xcosθ + y sinθ t )e dxdy s β ( s )ds 44

45 Advantages and Disadvantages of Nuclear Source Imaging Functional images can be obtained, Spatial resolution is poor, Good tissue specific contrast, Involves ionizing radiation. 45

46 Ultrasonic Imaging Body is probed by Ultrasonic waves, Ultrasound wave propagates through the body, Fraction of the ultrasound waves are reflected at various tissue interfaces along the wave path, producing echoes, The reflected echo signals are measured and used to reconstruct the reflection coefficient distribution along the path. 46

47 Reflectivity of normally incident waves Materials at interface Reflectivity Brain-skull bone 0.66 Fat-bone 0.69 Fat-blood 0.08 Muscle-blood 0.03 Muscle-liver 0.01 Soft tissue-water 0.89 Soft tissue-air
