EVERY EDGE, EVERY CONTOUR, EVERY IMAGE
The scan field-of-view is always smaller than the gantry bore, due to the architecture of the CT tube and detector. The smaller field-of-view may limit the information needed for accurate simulation and planning.
Traditional reconstruction algorithms only use the attenuation data that is completely common to each detector view which is also known as the scan FOV. The data that is in the common surface to each view is only a fraction of the data collected. The rest of the data can be leveraged to image the entire bore with an advanced iterative algorithm.
MaxFOV technology is designed to leverage all the acquired data to enable viewable imaging to the edge of the bore. MaxFOV detects both the patient and non-patient information in sinogram space. The non-patient objects are managed in the sinogram space to minimize interference artifacts in the MaxFOV imaging space.
