Paper Abstract

A software system has been developed to support analysis of CT images for tissue densitometry. Analysis can be done on either whole organ areas in a slice open subregions of these areas. CT numbers can he calibrated to absolute density. The system has been used to analyze lung and liver density in animal studies and lung density in a limited number of patients.
