Title: Graphics processing unit management system for computed tomography

Abstract

A method and apparatus for managing operation of graphics processing units in a computer system. A processing thread in the computer system controls processing of a set of sinogram data by a graphics processing unit to form a set of graphics data. An output thread in the computer system controls writing of the set of graphics data to a storage system. The graphics processing unit is available to perform processing of another set of sonogram data while the set of graphics data is written to the storage system such that the increased availability of a plurality of graphics processing units is present.
