early detection

BD-01: Breast-CT

The primary aim of this project is to improve early-stage diagnostics for breast cancer. The goal is to develop a 3D breast X-ray computer tomograph (breast CT for short) for the female breast, characterized by higher sensitivity in the early detection of breast cancer, as well as by greater patient comfort. Every step from the imaging of microcalcifications and the differential diagnosis of lesions with dynamic CT, through to image-guided biopsy can all be performed on one device during just one patient appointment.

Better detection and differentiation between benign and malignant tumors

BD-02: CT Angiography for the early detection of coronary heart disease

The major aim of sub-project BD02 is to develop and validate new computer tomography procedures which enable representation of the coronary arteries and the detection and quantification of atherosclerotic plaque with enhanced spatial and temporal resolution, higher reproducibility and, very importantly, with less radiation exposure. Siemens AG is undertaking the technical development work, which includes new detector technologies, new image reconstruction processes and new algorithms for software-based automatic diagnostics.
