Parallelization is the answer to the ever-growing demands of computing power by taking advantage of multi-core processor technology and modern many-core graphics compute units. Multi-core CPUs and many-core GPUs have the potential to substantially reduce the execution time of a program but it is often a challenging task to ensure that all available hardware is […]

Automatic organ segmentation is an important prerequisite for many computer-aided diagnosis systems. The high anatomical variability of organs in the abdomen, such as the pancreas, prevents many segmentation methods from achieving high accuracies when compared to other segmentation of organs like the liver, heart or kidneys. Recently, the availability of large annotated training sets and […]

The novel "Volume-Enclosing Surface exTraction Algorithm" (VESTA) generates triangular isosurfaces from computed tomography volumetric images and/or three-dimensional (3D) simulation data. Here, we present various benchmarks for GPU-based code implementations of both VESTA and the current state-of-the-art Marching Cubes Algorithm (MCA). One major result of this study is that VESTA runs significantly faster than the MCA.

Biomedical image reconstruction applications require producing high fidelity images in or close to real-time. We have implemented reconstruction of three dimensional conebeam computed tomography(CBCT) with two dimensional projections. The algorithm takes slices of the target, weights and filters them to backproject the data, then creates the final 3D volume. We have implemented the algorithm using […]

Dose Volume Histogram(DVH) is necessary for evaluating radiotherapy planning. With the increase of patient CT slices and the development of intensity-modulated radiation therapy(IMRT) technology, statistical process of DVH requires a large number of cubic interpolation calculation, and the sequential single threaded DVH code on the CPU can not meet the real-time requirement. The paper presents […]

Computed tomography (CT) is a widespread method used to study the internal structure of objects. The method has applications in medicine, industry and other fields of human activity. In particular, Electronic Imaging, as a species CT, can be used to restore the structure of nanosized objects. Accurate and rapid results are in high demand in […]

For ray-casting of non-rigid deformations, the direct approach (as opposed to the traditional indirect approach) does not require the computation of an intermediate volume to be used for the rendering step. The aim of this study was to compare the two approaches in terms of performance (speed) and accuracy (image quality). The direct and the […]

In this paper CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) programming and OpenMP (Open Multi-Processing) are used for the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and CPU (Central Processing Unit) parallel computation of material damage. The material damage is evaluated by a multilevel finite element analysis within material domains reconstructed from a high-resolution micro-focus X-ray computed tomography system. An […]

Brain perfusion weighted images acquired using dynamic contrast studies have an important clinical role in acute stroke diagnosis and treatment decisions. The purpose of my PhD research is to develop novel methodologies for improving the efficiency and quality of brain perfusion-imaging analysis so that clinical decisions can be made more accurately and in a shorter […]

Graphical processing units (GPUs) have become widely adopted in the medical imaging community. The parallel SIMD nature of GPUs maps perfectly to many reconstruction algorithms. Because of this, it is relatively straightforward to parallelize common reconstruction algorithms (e.g. FDK backprojection). This means that significant performance improvements must come from careful memory optimizations, exploiting ASICs and […]

We propose the Reconstruction Toolkit (RTK, http://www.openrtk.org), an open-source toolkit for fast cone-beam CT reconstruction, based on the Insight Toolkit (ITK) and using GPU code extracted from Plastimatch. RTK is developed by an open consortium (see affiliations) under the non-contaminating Apache 2.0 license. The quality of the platform is daily checked with regression tests in […]

Single Instruction, Multiple Data (SIMD) vectorization is a major driver of performance in current architectures, and is mandatory for achieving good performance with codes that are limited by instruction throughput. We investigate the efficiency of different SIMD-vectorized implementations of the RabbitCT benchmark. RabbitCT performs 3D image reconstruction by back projection, a vital operation in computed […]
