Cell Processor to Improve CT Reconstruction Speed by 100X

Cell Processor to Improve CT Reconstruction Speed by 100X
Posted 2006-11-24 04:43:55
Chelmsford, Mass.-based Mercury Computer Systems, a provider of computing systems and software for data-intensive applications is teaming with the Institute of Medical Physics (IMP) of Erlangen, Germany to utilize the IBM/Toshiba/Sony-developed Cell Broadband Engine (BE) processor,
 
 
The Cell BE processor contains eight synergistic processing elements with peak performance in excess of 180 GFLOPS (180 billion floating-point operations per second) with a 25GBps memory bandwidth.
 
 
They estimate that CT scan reconstructions can be increase 100 times the current speed of microprocessor-based reconstructions.
