Paper Abstract

In this paper, a hybrid helix-saddle trajectory scanning mode is proposed for bolus-chasing CT angiography. By combining the conventional helical trajectory and saddle trajectory appropriately, an optimal curve can be obtained with a capability of localized volumetric imaging at desirable locations. In this context, a condition for the PI-line existence is determined. Then, both filtered-backprojection (FBP), backprojection filtration (BPF) and reduced-scan FBP algorithms are developed. Numerical studies with the 3D Shepp-Logan phantom support the validity and merits of the proposed trajectories and associated algorithms.
