Correlation between pixel values in a cone-beam computed tomographic scanner and the computed tomographic values in a multidetector row computed tomographic scanner

Correlation between pixel values in a cone-beam computed tomographic scanner and the computed tomographic values in a multidetector row computed tomographic scanner

Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography 35(5): 662-665

The study's objectives were to investigate the correlation between pixel values obtained from a cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) scanner and the computed tomographic (CT) values from a multidetector row CT scanner and to determine whether they have a linear relationship at various tube voltages and tube currents. A phantom with different concentrations of contrast medium at the center of a multidetector row CT and a CBCT scanner was scanned at various imaging parameters. Computed tomographic values and pixel values were measured using ImageJ. Regression analysis was performed, as well as correlation tests with a Pearson correlation coefficient. A significant correlation between pixel values and the CT values of the same specimen was observed (P < 0.0001), and a linear relationship was found between the values from the 2 scanners at each parameter. A high correlation and linear relationship between the CT values and pixel values were found at each parameter. Therefore, linear functions can be used to convert a pixel value from the CBCT machine used in this study to the CT values.
