Deep Learning Attenuation Correction
A Breakthrough in SPECT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
Spectrum Dynamics has developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) methodology for attenuation correction for its D-SPECT® Series cardiac camera. It’s another innovation from Spectrum Dynamics to truly transform nuclear cardiology.
TruCorr Adresses the Challenges Created by Attenuation Artifacts
TruCorr is a revolutionary approach that uses Deep Learning to generate attenuation corrected myocardial perfusion images. This new capability for the D-SPECT Cardiac Digital SPECT improves image quality and integrates seamlessly with the existing Myocardial Perfusion Imaging (MPI) existing workflow.
A Patient-Centered Innovation for D-SPECT That Improves Accuracy and Ease of SPECT Imaging
Enhance the value of SPECT in myocardial perfusion imaging with CZT-based images corrected with TruCorr. TruCorr is based on the patient's SPECT myocardial perfusion emission data and offers a more convenient and efficient attenuation correction process for both clinicians and patients.
With TruCorr your practice will gain more time and resources to dedicate where they are needed most, as well as more accurate imaging to guide care decisions.
Deep Learning Attenuation Correction (DLAC) Methodology
TruCorr is based on a convolutional neural network (CNN) that was trained to correct reconstructed emission data. It uses only the SPECT data from a single acquisition, with no CT or Gd-153 transmission scan required or additional time beyond D-SPECT standard clinical protocols.
Seamless Workflow from Acquisition Through Image Review
In the integrated TruCorr workflow, the TruSPECT workstation does all the work, generating deep learning attenuation corrected (DLAC) datasets for you to review in your preferred image viewing program.
TruSPECT Workstation Integration: Apply TruCorr and generate attenuation corrected images by using the workflow integrated in the D-SPECT Workstation.
Flexible Patient Positioning: Utilize TruCorr in supine or upright patient scanning positioning.
Easy-to-access results: Review images using your preferred cardiac analysis software, such as 4DM or Cedars.
