+ - Algorithm Brings Speedier, Safer CT Scans->

Submitted by kenekaplan
kenekaplan (2426100) writes "Standard CT scanners can generate images of patient's body in less than five minutes today, but the radiation dose can be equal to about 70 chest X-rays. Lower powered CT scans can be used in non-emergency situations, but it can take more than 4 days to produce those images. Intel and GE created an algorithm that speeds up a computer's ability to process the low radiation dose scans by 100x, from 100 hours per image to 1 hour."
