Figure 12 shows the original CT image and the enhanced images created from CT number differences of the specimen under dynamic pressure loading.
[19] applied the CT detection technique for the study of rock damage characteristics, established a mathematical model of CT number distribution in damaged rock, and deduced a formula for expressing the rock damage variables by CT numbers.
The CT number rises with the increase in absorbed dose.
Prior to the alignment of brain image, the skull was stripped by a threshold method since CT number of bone tissues are consistently higher than brain tissues.
CT number (in Hounsfield units) depends on X-ray attenuation, which depends on the physical density (g/[cm.sup.3]) (electron-density) and atomic number (Z).
At some early point of this, the CT value is crossed, and our assay scores positive (and we get a cycle CT number useful for quantitation, if desired).
Diagnosis of lipoma was based on homogenous hypodensity of lesion with CT number (Hounsfield units) corresponding to fatty lesion.
The CT image files store the pixel-values as CT numbers. The CT number represents the relative X-ray absorption properties of different organs or tissues with respect to water [5].
The Ct number for a sample was obtained via qPCR with a cDNA template generated by primer r1 ([Ct.sub.r1]) or byprimer r2 ([Ct.sub.r2]).
Each pixel has a CT number value which is proportional to the attenuation coefficients of x-rays (i.e., x-ray absorption coefficients of the log scanned) as the x-rays pass through the corresponding wood zone.
* The CT number refers to the concentration (C) of free chlorine in milligrams per liter (parts per million) multiplied by time (T) in minutes at a specific pH and temperature.
