University of Washington Emission Reconstruction Demo (UWERD)
UWERD is an educational software tool designed to inform medical imaging professionals about tomographic image generation and reconstruction. The demonstration tool is specifically designed for positron emission tomograpy (PET) data, although several of the key concepts are transferable to SPECT and CT reconstruction. This code was written for nuclear medicine and radiology resident education and may be valuable for medical scientists and engineers interested in learning about tomographic modalities.
The tool was written in IDL (ITT, White Plains, NY) and is available as a IDL Virtual Machine application. Users will need to install the free IDL Virtual Machine or have a licensed full version of IDL.
