Combination of Photon-Integrating/Counting Detector Moduli for Spectral CT
Spectral computed tomography (CT) systems are a critical diagnostic tool in medicine. CT machines use computerized x-ray imaging to produce cross-sectional images of the body. Improvements in CT imaging technologies can lower radiation exposure and support life-saving interventions. Current spectral systems can be expensive to implement and may provide...

Multi-parameter X-ray Computed Tomography (MXCT) Methods and Systems
The MXCT method combines scattered with traditional attenuated imaging. This approach enables greater sensitivity and specificity, especially for soft biological tissues. Additional advantages include improved contrast of CT images and reduced radiation dosage. Potential applications include biomedical imaging as well as nondestructive testing.
