Cone Beam Computed Tomography (Imaging in Medical Diagnosis by Chris C. Shaw

By Chris C. Shaw

Conventional computed tomography (CT) ideas hire a slim array of x-ray detectors and a fan-shaped x-ray beam to rotate round the sufferer to provide pictures of skinny sections of the sufferer. huge sections of the physique are lined by means of relocating the sufferer into the rotating x-ray detector and x-ray resource gantry. Cone beam CT is another procedure utilizing a wide quarter detector and cone-shaped x-ray beam to provide 3D pictures of a thick portion of the physique with one complete attitude (360 measure or one hundred eighty measure plus detector assurance) rotation. It unearths functions in occasions the place cumbersome, traditional CT platforms may intervene with scientific systems or can't be built-in with the first remedies or imaging structures.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography explores the earlier, current, and destiny kingdom of clinical x-ray imaging whereas explaining how cone beam CT, with its stronger spatial solution and compact configuration, is utilized in scientific functions and animal learn. The book:

  • Supplies an in depth advent to cone beam CT, overlaying simple rules and purposes in addition to complex techniques

  • Explores state of the art learn and destiny advancements whereas studying the basic obstacles of the technology

  • Addresses matters concerning implementation and process features, together with photograph caliber, artifacts, radiation dose, and perception

  • Reviews the historic improvement of scientific x-ray imaging, from traditional CT options to volumetric 3D imaging

  • Discusses the most important elements of cone beam CT: photo acquisition, reconstruction, processing, and display

A reference paintings for scientists, engineers, scholars, and imaging professionals, Cone Beam Computed Tomography provides an outstanding realizing of the idea and implementation of this progressive technology.
