Calibration for optimised lung parenchyma analysis


#1

Hi,

Chest analysis is more clinically accurate if the hounsfield units are calibrated prior to analysis, is this possible or already built in to the CIP (specifically the parenchyma analysis module)?

Eg. air outside patient set to -1000HU and blood in aorta set to 50HU

Thanks!

Hi,

That is an excellent suggestion. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have an autocalibration approach within CIP to perform a linear correction of HU values based on reference values. We will incorporate this into our wish list of features.

In the meantime, you could use a combination of the editor and label statistics module to gather mean values in the trachea and aorta to perform a correction.

Best,

Raul
