Simultaneous confidence intervals for image reconstruction problems

Proceedings of ICASSP '94. IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing, 1994

We provide a methodology for specifying a set of simultaneous (1-/spl alpha/)% confidence intervals on the intensity of each image pixel for emission and transmission tomography. These intervals give a (1-/spl alpha/)% confidence region which, given a specific family of noise distributions, e.g. Gaussian or Poisson, is guaranteed to contain the actual image with probability at least 1-/spl alpha/. This ...


Separation of factor images for blood flow estimation in positron emission tomography using ensemble independent component analysis

Proceedings of 7th International Workshop on Enterprise networking and Computing in Healthcare Industry, 2005. HEALTHCOM 2005., 2005

  • Simultaneous confidence intervals for image reconstruction problems

    We provide a methodology for specifying a set of simultaneous (1-/spl alpha/)% confidence intervals on the intensity of each image pixel for emission and transmission tomography. These intervals give a (1-/spl alpha/)% confidence region which, given a specific family of noise distributions, e.g. Gaussian or Poisson, is guaranteed to contain the actual image with probability at least 1-/spl alpha/. This region is a "set estimate" of the image which can be used to study confidence levels of popular image reconstructions such as filtered back projection, weighted-least-squares, and maximum likelihood. Alternatively, the set estimate can be used as a feasibility region from which particular image estimates can be selected based on additional criteria. A simulation for parallel ray projection geometries in emission tomography is given.<>

  • Separation of factor images for blood flow estimation in positron emission tomography using ensemble independent component analysis

    To calculate regional myocardial blood flow, ensemble ICA (independent component analysis) was evaluated. Myocardial blood flow was estimated from dynamic H/sub 2//sup 15/O PET, and perfusion score was computed from myocardial SPECT data in this study. In ensemble ICA, posterior pdf was approximated by a rectified Gaussian distribution to incorporate non- negativity constraint, which is suitable to dynamic images in nuclear medicine. Major cardiac components were separated successfully by the ensemble ICA method. Mean myocardial blood flow was 1.2/spl plusmn/0.40 ml/min/g in rest, 1.85/spl plusmn/1.12 ml/min/g in stress state. Reproducibility of data analysis for blood flow values were highly correlated (r=0.99). The image contrast between left ventricle and myocardium was better than other method. Perfusion reserve was decreased in the stenosis region. Applied ensemble ICA method will be a feasible method to handle dynamic image sequence obtained by the nuclear medicine techniques.

  • Image Normalization Strategies for Organ Specific Models of Functional Uptake in FDG-PET /CT

    We are investigating techniques to develop organ specific models of normal functional Positron Emission Tomography (PET) uptake. A key issue in the development of models of functional uptake is the appropriate normalization of the PET uptake across multiple studies. It is well known that the tracer uptake in PET is subject is a range of variations including protocols and scanners, reconstruction algorithm as well as biological effects. In this study, we investigate and report results of normalization strategies for a group of organs. In particular, we evaluate the performance of reference tissue normalization strategies applied to our problem and propose a novel normalization strategy that estimates the normal uptake for a particular organ from that of a number of reference tissue regions that may be assumed to be disease-free. Results from the quantitative analysis indicate that a normalisation method using weighted contribution from a number of reference regions perform better than the best normalisation using a single reference region (liver), and show equivalent performance of both normalisation strategies for the abnormal voxel classification experiment.

  • Feasibility of simultaneous emission and transmission scanning using short rod sources

    The feasibility of simultaneously acquiring whole body Emission and Transmission scans using short or partially extended transmission rods was investigated. Count rate tests were performed on an ECAT HR+, where 3 rods filled with /sup 11/C were extended fully and partially into the FOV in the presence of an emission source (cylinder phantom 0.25 /spl mu/Ci/cc). Prompt and random coincidences were acquired separately with rod windowing to allow separation of Em and Tx counts. At a total rod strength of 0.5 mCi/cm the randoms in the Em and Tx data were reduced by 90% and 65%, respectively. The Em-NEC was improved by a factor of 4 by reducing the exposed length to 4 cm. In addition, the Tx count rate was improved by 32% due to reduced dead time. Using short (or partially extended) Tx rods, randoms rates and dead-time are significantly reduced, which should allow simultaneous Em and Tx scanning using conventional strength Tx sources without significantly degrading the Em images from increased randoms.

  • Nanophotosensitisers for teranostics

    The limits of tumor detection by means of nuclear medicine do not exceed: 3 mm for X-Ray tomography and MRI; 4 mm for PET; 1.5 in diameter in average by clinical investigation among the USA citizens. Thus at least 3 problems remain unsolved: diagnostics and consequent treatment of the one third of all malignant tumors', i.e. their early states, squamous cell carcinoma of mucous tissue; and the third one problem: `a long way and expensive'. The limit of tumor detection by methods of optical spectroscopy is around 1-2 mm, although in principle it is possible to reach pathologies 5-10 μm in diameter. The problem formation: It is possible to diagnose and conduct treatment of those types of pathologies which could be reached by irradiation or could selectively accumulate a Photosensitiser (PS).[1]

  • Non-negative matrix factorization of dynamic images in nuclear medicine

    Recently suggested non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) seems to overcome fundamental limitations of factor analysis at least In theoretical aspect. NMF cost function uses Poisson statistics as a noise model, rather than the Gaussian statistics, and provides a simple learning rule, in contrast to the tricky optimization in factor analysis. To study the feasibility of NMF for the analysis of dynamic image sequences in nuclear medicine, NMF was applied to H/sub 2//sup 15/O dynamic myocardial PET Images acquired from dog studies, and the results were compared with those obtained by conventional factor analysis method. Using NMF we could obtain basis images corresponding to major cardiac components. Their time-activity curves showed reasonable shapes that we have been familiar with. With the assumption of proper number of factors, NMF presented good results at least similar with those by factor analysis. Our results showed that NMF would be feasible for image segmentation and factor extraction from dynamic image sequences in nuclear medicine.

  • Iterative Energy Spectrum Deconvolution (IESD): a new technique for significantly improving the effective energy resolution of gamma camera

    Energy windows used clinically in nuclear medicine (20-30%) accept a significant proportion of Compton scattered photons to highly degrade image contrast. We developed an Iterative Energy Spectrum Deconvolution (IESD) algorithm for improving the energy resolution of gamma camera to reduce the impact of photon scatter on radionuclide images. Using only those deconvoluted energy components near the photopeak, we exclude scattered photons to form scatter corrected projections. All phantom studies reconstructed with attenuation correction and IESD correction were shown significant improved contrast as cardiac and hepatic activity separation. Contrast of presenting defect region was also significantly enhanced in the phantom and patient studies. Computational times for energy deconvolution times were within clinically acceptable norms (/spl sim/14 minutes/64 projections, 2 GHz, 100 iters). The computational requirements of this technique make it feasible for routine clinical use.
