Live imaging scanning software

LISA imaging software – Live Imaging, Scanning and Analysis software for development applications

LISA Live Imaging, Scanning and Analysis software is designed to get you up and running on your Kromek equipment in less than a day.
It uses a development platform that allows you to quickly test your theories before committing to writing your own software. LISA is especially valuable when using the SPECT camera as the software allows you to quickly scale up on the number of the detectors.

The data can be saved to disk and/or displayed live.

This live imaging and scanning software is specifically designed for these Kromek detectors

Full control over your Kromek CZT camera system

Quick start and flexible configuration of detector

  • Full configuration of all camera configuration settings.
  • Allow or restrict access to all camera configurations: 2×2, 4×4, 2×8, General Purpose Camera SPECT (GPC).
  • Live capture and display of data.
  • Optional streaming of live capture data to disk (in both binary and CSV format).
  • Save spectrum data format files as a summary of the capture session.
  • Perform scheduled/repeating captures (with count and time limit stop conditions) and auto-saving of both list mode and spectrum data files.
  • Perform full energy calibration, flat field correction and non-conforming pixels settings.
  • Save and reload calibration file data.
  • View per pixel calibration data.
  • View calibrated/corrected pixel map capture data.
  • Save pixel map images as PNG image files.

Control over each pixel

  • Unprecedented control over image capture, down to the pixel level on the detector.
  • In-built safety features to help prevent damage to the detector units from setting a configuration that creates a conflict in the unit.
  • View live photon collection on a x-y plane.
  • View live energy-calibrated & flatfield (uniformity)-corrected photon distribution on a x-y plane.
  • Mask any unwanted pixels live.
  • Since data collection is live, a user can know if the currently-occurring image collection is a legitimate data set or not.
  • Collect data in a continuous series in a controllable way.

Faster and better image capture

Get up and running with your Kromek detectors fast and quickly run the tests and experiments you need.

LISA controls give you a much cleaner image

Raw LISA image without correction

Shown on the right is a  thyroid-phantom image, taken with a Kromek SPECT general purpose camera.

The images are:

  •  99mTc-filled thyroid phantom (right top).
  • 57Co point source (left top).
  • 241Am point source (centre bottom).

Image with correction

Once the raw image is corrected in LISA: loading an energy calibration file, and flatfield correction file, only peak counts of 140.5keV (+- 5%) are shown. These corrections cleanly remove photons with unwanted energy ranges allowing the user to see a much clearer image of the target.

Available in base level version

  • Full configuration of all D-Matrix camera configuration settings.
  • Live Capture and display of data.
  • Optional streaming of live capture data to disk (in both binary and CSV format).
  • Ability to save “spectrum” data format files as a summary of the capture session.
  • Ability to perform scheduled/repeating captures (with count and time limit stop conditions) + auto-saving of both list mode and spectrum data files.
  • Ability to save pixel map images as PNG image files.
  • Ability to mask pixels.
  • Fully dockable/undockable/tabbed UI framework with the ability to spread UI over multiple monitors etc.
  • Ability to view per-pixel raw spectra graphs.
  • Customizable (with user-defined presets) colour palettes for pixel map images (+ Black/white global “skin” options).
  • Pixel map image smoothing with pseudo-resolution enhancement.

Additional licence required

  • Ability to perform full energy calibration, flat field correction and non-conforming pixels settings.
  • Ability to save and reload calibration file data.
  • Ability to view per pixel calibration data.
  • Ability to view calibrated/corrected pixel map capture data.
  • Ability to view per-pixel raw and calibrated spectra graphs.
