Abstract
Dynamic Reconstruction and Rendering (DRR) is a fast and flexible tomosynthesis image reconstruction and display implementation. By leveraging the computational efficiency gains afforded by off-the-shelf GPU hardware, tomosynthesis reconstruction can be performed on demand at real-time, user-interactive frame rates. Dynamic multiplanar reconstructions allow the user to adjust reconstruction and display parameters interactively, including axial sampling, slice location, plane tilt, magnification, and filter selection. Reconstruction on-demand allows tomosynthesis images to be viewed as true three-dimensional data rather than just a stack of two-dimensional images. The speed and dynamic rendering capabilities of DRR can improve diagnostic accuracy and lead to more efficient clinical workflows.
