Building on its core Xtrillion array processor, TeraRecon has created a server that promises to make volumetric CT a practical reality for multidetector CT scanners. This Cone Beam Reconstruction server, which will be showcased at the RSNA meeting, employs an array of up to 32 Xtrillion processors working in parallel on a standard PC host. The server can construct volumetric images from data generated on the fly by multidetector CT scanners, according to the company. If adopted and successfully integrated by CT vendors, it could pave the way for a transition from slice-based images to volumetric models.
