A new approach to exact cone-beam reconstruction without Radon transform

H. Kudo; N. Miyagi; T. Saito 1998 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium Conference Record. 1998 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference (Cat. No.98CH36255), 1998

Most exact cone-beam reconstruction methods are based on the Tuy-Smith- Grangeat formula which links cone-beam projections to the 3-D Radon transform. The computation of the 3-D Radon transform in these methods leads to drawbacks such as much computational requirements and significant discretization errors. The authors propose new exact cone-beam reconstruction method which does not explicitly compute the 3-D Radon transform. ...

Experimental measurements of a point source in a uniformly-attenuating cylindrical phantom are being used to model the energy-dependent point-source response function (PSRF) of a SPECT imaging system. These data provide a model PSRF for validating Monte Carlo simulations and testing reconstruction algorithms. Additionally, the data are being used to develop a reconstruction method that utilizes full energy spectral information. The ...

Ectomography is a limited view angle method, which involves rotating a slant hole collimator in front of a stationary gamma camera detector. It has been implemented on a mobile system used for acute perfusion studies. Collimators with multiple segments are used to improve system sensitivity and decrease data acquisition times. For myocardial perfusion imaging, collimators with up to 4 segments ...


Gamma ray irradiated LED's: Surface emission and significant wavelength tuning via surface states

N. Kopeika; S. Hava; I. Hirsh IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics, 1984

Wavelength tuning via shallow junction GaAs LED's as a result of gamma irradiation is increased significantly when the irradiated LED's are operated in vacuum. Vacuum operation is seen to be essentially equivalent to increased gamma ray dosage for low irradiation levels as a result of desorptive processes common to both phenomena. They give rise to decreased nonradiative and increased radiative ...

The previous feed forward (FF) loop with each single phase reactive current detector of the MR magnet power supply was exchanged to the present by both FF- and NFB-loops. The FF-loops consists of a three phase reactive power detector of the MPS and a forcing pattern generator ...

  • Corpuscles and Electrons

    In the mid to late 1890s, J. J. Thomson and colleagues at Cambridge's Cavendish Laboratory conducted experiments on "cathode rays" (a form of radiation produced within evacuated glass vessels subjected to electric fields) -- the results of which some historians later viewed as the "discovery" of the electron. This book is both a biography of the electron and a history of the microphysical world that it opened up.The book is organized in four parts. The first part, Corpuscles and Electrons, considers the varying accounts of Thomson's role in the experimental production of the electron. The second part, What Was the Newborn Electron Good For?, examines how scientists used the new entity in physical and chemical investigations. The third part, Electrons Applied and Appropriated, explores the accommodation, or lack thereof, of the electron in nuclear physics, chemistry, and electrical science. It follows the electron's gradual progress from cathode ray to ubiquitous subatomic particle and eponymous entity in one of the world's most successful industries -- electronics. The fourth part, Philosophical Electrons, considers the role of the electron in issues of instrumentalism, epistemology, and realism. The electron, it turns out, can tell us a great deal about how science works.

    In a rapidly changing world, we rely upon experts to assess the promise and risks of new technology. But how do these experts make sense of a highly uncertain future? In Arguments that Count, Rebecca Slayton offers an important new perspective. Drawing on new historical documents and interviews as well as perspectives in science and technology studies, she provides an original account of how scientists came to terms with the unprecedented threat of nuclear-armed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). She compares how two different professional communities -- physicists and computer scientists -- constructed arguments about the risks of missile defense, and how these arguments changed over time. Slayton shows that our understanding of technological risks is shaped by disciplinary repertoires -- the codified knowledge and mathematical rules that experts use to frame new challenges. And, significantly, a new repertoire can bring long-neglected risks into clear view.In the 1950s, scientists recognized that high-speed computers would be needed to cope with the unprecedented speed of ICBMs. But the nation's elite science advisors had no way to analyze the risks of computers so used physics to assess what they could: radar and missile performance. Only decades later, after establishing computing as a science, were advisors able to analyze authoritatively the risks associated with complex software -- most notably, the risk of a catastrophic failure. As we continue to confront new threats, including that of cyber attack, Slayton offers valuable insight into how different kinds of expertise can limit or expand our capacity to address novel technological risks.

  • Simulations and Field Tests of a Reactor Coolant Pump Emergency Startup by Means of Remote Gas Units

    The problem of the reactor coolant pump start-up in case of emergency by means of remote gas power plant units was analyzed. A simulation model was developed which enabled a detailed simulation of the transient process occurring at the start-up. The start-up of the RCP motor set was simulated in case of available one and two gas units. The field tests were performed and the measured variable values complied well with the simulation results. Two gas units have been determined as a safe start-up scheme of the RCP motor set considering for safety reasons accepted busbars and motor protection settings. A derived model for deep rotor bars was experimentally confirmed as effective means for the RCP motor set start-up transient simulation. Start-up procedures has been designed and adopted to the safety procedures of the Nuclear Power Plant Kr?>ko.

    This chapter contains sections titled: Robert A . Bell: When will society recognize that nuclear reactors are environmentally safer than fossil-fuel power plants? Samuel J. Keene: How can effective communication help engineers develop the best products? Wade H. Shaw, Jr.: Can engineers abdicate leadership forever? Rui J. P. de Figueiredo: How can we accurately evaluate creativity and diversity?

  • Motors

    This chapter discusses the basic design and construction of motors and reviews some of the safety requirements when dealing with motor circuits and their associated loads. Electric motors convert electrical energy to mechanical energy to perform work. Motors are a very important element in the operation of the auxiliary systems that support power plant operations. For example, in nuclear power plants that are of a pressurized water reactor (PWR) design, the primary coolant is circulated between the reactor vessel and the steam generator by a reactor cooling pump (RCP). This is a critical function performed by electric motors. The National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) requires some minimum safety precautions when dealing with motor circuits and the loads connected to the motors. The induction motor is constructed with a stationary winding (the armature) that is installed in slots of a stationary core (stator).
