CT-MRI combined Scanner -Proposed
Ge Wang et al have proposed a combined CT-MRI. According to them combined CT-MRI scanner would reduce residual errors, enable simultaneous anatomical and functional imaging, and minimize exposure to ionizing radiation. Although multimodal imaging systems have become increasingly popular, a combined CT-MRI system has not yet been attempted. They have designed the CT-MRI scanner based on realistic numerical simulation and engineering optimization.
