Aunt Minnie, one of the leading radiology industry blogs, recently gave one of our manuscripts a great writeup. In PCCT allows radiologists to 'see more with less', Kate Madden Yee summarizes lead author Avinash Nehra and company's review of the current state of photon counting detector CT, published in the May 2023 issue of RadioGraphics. The CT CIC has helped lead the charge in advocating the extraordinary promise of photon counting CT, and that promise, as comprehensively collected by Nehra and coauthors, has begun to bear fruit.
One of those fruits is the focus of another recent article, Photon-counting CT: Next-generation technology for CSF-venous fistulas, where our Associate Medical Director Francis Baffour talks about the impact that photon counting CT has had on the identification of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leaks. These leaks, which can lead to serious symptoms, are often difficult to find, but photon counting CT can detect cases missed by conventional CT, all while the patient has essentially the exact same experience.
Innovation is in our name, and the CT CIC intents to stay at the forefront of this exceptional new technology. If you've ever been curious about the origins of our lab, the The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering recently highlighted our Technical Director, Cynthia McCollough, who dived deep into her experiences as a woman in science, the importance of mentorship, and how the joy of solving puzzles eventually became the CT CIC. Give it a read here: Her love of challenges has led to cutting-edge CT technology.
