Software, Computed Tomography
Definition : Software designed to operate computed tomography (CT) scanning systems and control/monitor a limited number of their functions. This software is usually intended to work only with one or a few models of CT scanning systems, usually by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to facilitate the analysis of measurements performed during the scanning procedure and facilitate sending/receiving patient information from and to information systems. CT scanning system software is usually not available separate from the CT system but may be updated (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system. Dedicated CT scanning system software is available for a variety of different applications (e.g., renal, cardiac, pulmonary) performed using axial (either whole body or head), spiral, or electron beam CT scanning systems.
