AI for CTs – AiCE

Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE)

Sharp, clear and distinct images. At low dose.

Harnessing the enormous computational power of a Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN), AiCE Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR) is trained to differentiate signal from noise. Moreover, that the algorithm can suppress noise while enhancing signal. Because it is trained with advanced MBIR, it exhibits high spatial resolution. But unlike MBIR, AiCE DLR overcomes the challenges (image appearance and/or reconstruction speed) in clinical adoption.

AiCE Deep Learning Reconstruction (AiCE DLR)

  • AiCE DLR applies a pre-trained Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN)
  • So, AiCE is able to enhance spatial resolution and low contrast detectability while simultaneously reducing noise
  • The pre-trained DCNN makes reconstruction speeds much faster than MBIR and fast enough for routine clinical use
  • Image reconstruction of AiCE DLR differentiates signal from noise, so the algorithm can suppress noise while enhancing signal
