Purpose: We provide a review of the key computed tomography (CT) technologies developed since the late 1980s and offer an overview of one of the future technologies under development. The focus of this review is mainly on the hardware and system development. The topics on the historical event linked to the early days of CT development and other innovations that contributed to the CT development, such as advanced image reconstruction techniques, are covered by companion papers in this special iss...
Background: To date, world widely, only a couple of papers have reported the association between pulmonary tuberculosis, Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and pregnancy, and none of these reports was from sub-Saharan Africa where tuberculosis is endemic. Objective: the main objective of this study is to describe the co-infection Pulmonary Tuberculosis and Severe COVID-19 in pregnant young Woman at the University Hospital of Kinshasa. Method: The report case is of a pregnant woman aged 19 (Pare...
Background: Brachial plexus injury is a complex nerve injury. This may be due to the anatomical complexity of the brachial plexus. Purpose: To obtain sonographic characteristics and oblique sagittal diameter of cervical nerve root by high frequency ultrasound, and the morphology of brachial plexus was described. Methods: Two hundred and twenty-one subjects were recruited in our ultrasonography laboratory between March and December 2016. Their ultrasonographic characteristics of bilateral brachia...

Purpose: To demonstrate the utility of high-resolution micro-computed tomography ( null null null μ null null CT null null null null ) for determining ground-truth size and shape properties of calcium grains for evaluation of detection performance in breast CT (bCT). Approach: Calcium carbonate grains ( null null null ∼ null null 200 null null null null null null μ null null m null null null null ) were suspended in 1% agar solution to emulate microcalcifications ( null null null μ null null Cal...
Lumbar disc herniation (HDL) is a major public health problem in the world. Objectives: The study aimed to determine the clinical and radiological aspects of the lumbar disc herniation [LDH] operated in Kinshasa environments Hospital. Materials and methods: It was a well-documented 160 cases of LDH operated in Biamba Marie Mutombo hospital from January 2012 until December 2016 was evaluated. Results: The most interesting age group range from 31 to 50 years (68, 8%) with a mean age of 44, 7 ± 12,...

Purpose: Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in developing and developed countries and is responsible for 15% of women’s cancer deaths worldwide. Conventional absorption-based breast imaging techniques lack sufficient contrast for comprehensive diagnosis. Propagation-based phase-contrast computed tomography (PB-CT) is a developing technique that exploits a more contrast-sensitive property of x-rays: x-ray refraction. X-ray absorption, refraction, and contrast-to-noise in the corresp...

Purpose: Caused by brain trauma or blood vessel abnormality, intracerebral hemorrhage and secondary ischemia have become prevalent and severe neurological diseases. The timely and accurate detection of disease is essential for the recovery of patients. As an emerging visualization technique, electrical impedance tomography (EIT) offers an alternative. It is able to reconstruct the conductivity distribution that reflects the pathological variation of human tissue. Approach: In the EIT-based detec...

Purpose: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common degenerative disease involving a variety of structural changes in the affected joint. In addition to narrowing of the articular space, recent studies involving statistical shape analysis methods have suggested that specific bone shapes might be associated with the disease. We aim to investigate the feasibility of using the recently introduced framework of functional shapes (Fshape) to extract morphological features of OA that combine shape variability of ...
