A photon-counting CT system uses a photon-counting detector (PCD) to track individual photon interactions. The detector pixels of a PCD each record an approximate energy spectrum by keeping track of the deposited energy in each interaction, making it a spectral or energy-resolved CT approach. On the other hand, Typical CT scanners, use energy-integrating detectors (EIDs), which register the overall energy from a large number of photons as well as electronic noise deposited in a pixel over a set period of time. Typical CT detectors therefore register only photon intensity, comparable to black-and-white photography, whereas photon-counting detectors register also spectral information, similar to color photography. When a photon interacts in a PCD, the height of the resulting electrical pulse is roughly proportional to the photon energy. By comparing each pulse made in a pixel with an appropriate low-energy threshold, contributions from low-energy events resulting from both photon interactions and electronic noise are often filtered out. This effectively eliminates contributions from electronic noise at the expense of discarding photons with energy comparable to the noise level.
