Implement your reconstruction ideas efficiently and integrate them into standard workflow on Philips Achieva and Ingenia systems.
ReconFrame is a software platform providing the tools and the functionality to develop and execute a complete image reconstruction of MR data. All available Philips MR data formats can be read, reconstructed and exported. Using Matlab as programming environment, data reconstruction procedures can be designed and tested offline. Reconstruction programs can also be installed directly on the scanner and run instead or in parallel to the standard Philips reconstruction. Images reconstructed with ReconFrame on the scanner are written back in the scanner patient database, allowing for a seamless integration of custom reconstructions into the scanner workflow.
ReconFrame consists of three different software modules:
MRecon: ReconFrame contains an extensive object-oriented Matlab library, implementing many common image and spectrum reconstruction task. The object-oriented design makes it easy to expand or alter the existing functionality. Code examples of complete reconstructions are provided. They can serve as a starting point for custom development.
Scanner Software Patch: On the scanner, ReconFrame installs a scanner software patch which for each scan will complement the standard raw data with all necessary scan parameters required for reconstruction. The raw data is then the only input to ReconFrame based reconstructions. Sequence parameters exported in such a way are decoded and directly available in Matlab. The scanner software patch source code is provided and thus any additional scan parameter can easily be added to the ReconFrame data interface.
Pack’n Go Tool: The pack and go tool is ReconFrame’s independent patient database browser. Installed on the scanner, it allows accessing the database and exports raw and rec data files, using conveniently compressed file archives.
