Contrast-agent-free Medical Diagnostic Imaging

Tech ID: L-21-003 Background Contrast agent (CA) administration to a patient is a frequent prerequisite for medical imaging. For example, in heart imaging, the elimination of gadolinium contrast agent (CA) injections and manual segmentation are crucial for ischemic heart disease (IHD) diagnosis and treatment. In the clinic, CA-based late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) imaging and manual

4D Computed Tomography Cardiovascular Flow Imaging

Tech ID: L-19-007 Background Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the non-invasive gold standard for blood flow assessment in larger blood vessels (arteries and veins), but MRI has limitations in terms of accessibility, patient throughput and operating cost. In contrast, Computed Tomography (CT) is one of the most frequently used diagnostic imaging modalities in hospitals, but
