Software, Computed Tomography Study, Blood-Flow, Cerebral
Definition : Blood flow computed tomography (CT) study software designed to acquire, process, and archive data and images obtained during cerebral (intracranial) blood flow studies. This software usually works with CT scanning systems and post-imaging workstations; it may also interact with devices used in the procedures, such as monitors, printers, contrast media injectors, and recorders. The software is intended to work only with one or a few models of CT scanning systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending of data to and from hospital information systems and other (e.g., picture archiving and communication) workstations. Cerebral blood flow studies typically use CT images to analyze blood vessel lumen and stenosis, brain strokes, and tumors. The software may or may not be available separate from the CT equipment and may be updated and/or upgraded (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
