Acceleware Corp. (Calgary, AB; announced the launch of its AxRecon image reconstruction solution for the medical imaging, security, and non-destructive testing markets. Image reconstruction for computed tomography (CT) scanners often takes hours of processing time and represents a barrier to efficiency. Acceleware’s solution cuts the time required to complete this work from hours to minutes.

The long processing time required for CT image reconstruction limits throughput and quality for companies, clinicians, and researchers. In order to meet the demands of their workloads, these users often sacrifice image quality to save on processing time. AxRecon works with existing cone-beam CT scanners to eliminate the bottleneck by significantly speeding up filtered back projection computations. This enables medical and commercial users to accelerate the reconstruction of their data and improve the quality of their images without disrupting their current workflow.

The AxRecon solution combines Acceleware’s proprietary software acceleration libraries with the massive parallel processing power of NVIDIA (Santa Clara, CA; graphic processing units (GPU) to dramatically increase the speed of sophisticated computations. AxRecon seamlessly integrates with existing CT scanners with minimal setup. Via this acceleration, users are able to increase the speed of their operations and quality of their end results while reducing the energy use and physical footprint of their HPC systems.
