Impulse and UW win medical imaging grant

Impulse and the University of Washington have won a grant from the Washington Technology Center for investigations into reconfigurable, FPGA-based computing in the domain of positron emission tomography (PET) scanning. This project, which will be directed by Scott Hauck at the University of Washington, will initially apply the Impulse C tools and multiple hardware platforms to the problem of filtered back-projection, then move into other areas of PET image construction. Note that the back-projection algorithm can also be used in applications such as synthetic aperterure radar, or SAR.

Scott Hauck, by the way, is the editor/author of a very good book titled Reconfigurable Computing: The Theory and Practice of FPGA-Based Computing.
