      Cui, Zheng; Wang, Ge (2008-06-12)
      Dr. Cui's group at Wake Forest has been investigating a newly discovered innate anticancer immunity in a colony of cancer resistant mice, and already demonstrated that the anticancer activity in the mice stems from the ...
    • Fast CT Reconstruction - Practical Performance via Parallelization 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-12)
      Parallel computing has been used to solve large-scale problems in many fields. While CT is being developed towards high-resolution, volumetric, dynamic and spectral imaging, datasets become increasingly large, and ...
    • Interior Tomography - Depict with Direct Data 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-14)
      While the conventional wisdom states that the interior problem - to reconstruct a region of interest (ROI) only from projection data through the ROI - does not have a unique solution, in June 2007 we published the first ...
    • Bolus-chasing CT Angiography - Catch the Contrast via Control 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-16)
      Intravenous injection of contrast media is required to enhance conspicuity of the vasculature, organs and tumors in CT angiography (CTA) for diagnosis of cardiovascular structures, peripheral vessels and solid organs. The ...
    • X-ray Grating-based Imaging - Waves Work Wonderfully 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-17)
      Current x-ray imaging is of critical for clinical and pre-clinical applications but it is fundamentally restricted by the attenuation mechanism. X-ray grating-based imaging represents outstanding opportunities and major ...
    • Axiomatic Imaging Theory - Formulate with Fairness & Fun 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-17)
      There are many imaging systems. Their performance characterization is important for all applications. Various definitions are introduced for quantification of image resolution, which is the ability of an imaging system to ...
    • Phase Approximation Model - Approximation Amazingly Accurate 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-20)
      The radiative transfer equation (RTE) well describes the photon propagation but its high computational cost is prohibitive for tomographic imaging. The diffusion approximation (DA) to RTE is the most popular but it only ...
    • Image Warping - Unravel Unevenness into Uniformity 

      Wang, Ge (2008-06-21)
      Demonstrations of anatomical systems computationally extracted from spiral CT images and then unraveled onto a plane in vivo to ultimately conceive 3D individualized models.
    • Work at the Present 

      Wang, Ge (2010-02-04)
      Cardiovascular diseases are pervasive at tremendous social and healthcare costs. There are urgent needs for higher fidelity cardiac CT with lower radiation dose. Based on the academic-industrial partnership between Virginia ...
    • Results in the Past 

      Wang, Ge (2010-02-04)
      Past research results include the following: • Modern CT scanners that use spiral-beam scanning and perform >100-million scans annually in the USA • Construction of the only 500nm resolution micro-CT system on the East ...
    • Development and Applications of Interior Tomography - Multi-source Interior Tomography for Ultrafast Performance 

      Wang, Ge; Ritman, Erik; Ye, Yangbo; Katsevich, Alexander; Yu, Hengyong; Cao, Guohua; Zhou, Otto (2010-04-05)
      Conventional tomography allows excellent reconstruction of an object from non-truncated projections. The long-standing interior problem is to reconstruct an interior ROI accurately only from local projection segments. ...
