Integrate CT Reconstruction Directly into Your System
With VGRECO, you can offer your customers the perfect all-in-one package: Your CT scanner paired with the CT reconstruction functions of Volume Graphics software. Use VGRECO in combination with the VGPROJECT SDK to fully integrate CT reconstruction directly into your system. A CT system with VGRECO automatically reconstructs volume data sets from the projection images taken by your CT scanner and saves them as .vgl files.
Reconstruction is a crucial step. All subsequent analyses and visualizations depend on the quality of the reconstructed volume data set.
Makes it possible to integrate CT reconstruction capabilities right into your CT system by combining the flexible VGPROJECT SDK with the modular Volume Graphics CT reconstruction options.
Quickly and precisely calculates three-dimensional volume data sets from the projection images taken by your CT scanner.
Supports cone beam, fan beam, parallel beam, planar, and helical (spiral) CT;
Uses the two algorithms Feldkamp, Davis, and Kress (FDK) and Algebraic Reconstruction Technique (ART) for the image reconstruction of, e.g., planar or helical (spiral) scans.
Improves the image quality using the standard Volume Graphics beam hardening correction or the optional Iterative Artifact Reduction (IAR)*.
Runs on off-the-shelf PCs; and uses one or multiple GPUs to speed up calculations by incorporating OpenCL.
Tailored to Your Needs
Because VGRECO is modular, it can be customized to match any need:
CT Reconstruction (Cone Beam, Fan Beam, Parallel Beam)
Special Algorithms (Helix, ART) for CT Reconstruction
IAR* for CT Reconstruction
CT Reconstruction (Planar)
* Technology licensed by Fraunhofer EZRT
Without beam hardening correction: The incorrect display of gray values (2D slices) causes, amongst other issues, holes in the object (3D view).
With beam hardening correction: The correct display of gray values (2D slices) and an object without holes (3D view).
No Special Hardware – No Limits
The software places no limit on the size of the volume that your customers can reconstruct; the hardware alone determines the boundaries of the possible. The advantage of VGRECO: No special hardware is required. It’s designed to work on off-the-shelf PCs equipped with a single or multiple graphic cards (GPUs) and CPUs (multi-processor/multi-core system).
By incorporating the OpenCL framework, VGRECO can use one or multiple GPUs to speed up calculations.
