Respiratory gated CT
In the advanced settings of the graphical user interface it is now possible to perform prospective respiratory gated CT using the X-CUBE system. Detector triggers are automatically determined from the current breathing rate, and adjusted continuously during the scan. The user can choose to image the end-expiration phase or adjust the triggering parameters to custom settings.
The images below show examples of a CT image acquired during the end-expiration and end-inspiration phase. All data was reconstructed using the iterative protocol and a voxel size of 100 µm.
