Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) plays an important role in image guided radiation therapy (IGRT). However, the large radiation dose from serial CBCT scans in most IGRT procedures raises a clinical concern, especially for pediatric patients who are essentially excluded from receiving IGRT for this reason.

|Detailed Technology Description||
UC San Diego researchers have developed a fast GPU-based algorithm to reconstruct CBCT from under-sampled and noisy projection data so as to reduce the total imaging dose. The high computation efficiency in this algorithm allows for real-time iterative CBCT reconstruction in clinical environments.
