Proposed system for ultrafast computed tomography

J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1977 Oct;1(4):494-9. doi: 10.1097/00004728-197710000-00017.


Construction of a new ultrafast scanner system suitable for dynamic computed tomography is now under consideration, with development soon to begin. This system will be characterized by an electronically controlled X-ray generator with wide angle double diffraction, which will permit transverse axial images to be taken in times as short as 0.01 second.
