Automated quality assurance system for clinical CT systems

Design Award

  • Design Excellence Award Honorable Mention

Project Overview

Computed tomography (CT) machines are tested regularly to ensure the machines are calibrated and functioning properly. After each test, a report is generated featuring the results and testing protocols. The report is given to service engineers who adjust the machines based on the test results. In order to expedite and standardize CT quality assurance testing, a software program will be created to accept user input, automate calculations and CT image analysis, and generate testing reports. This program will consist of a graphical user interface created in MATLAB and will help to reduce communication issues as well as significantly decrease the time and effort involved in CT quality assurance testing.
