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

By Chris C. Shaw

Conventional computed tomography (CT) options hire a slim array of x-ray detectors and a fan-shaped x-ray beam to rotate round the sufferer to provide photographs of skinny sections of the sufferer. huge sections of the physique are coated by way of relocating the sufferer into the rotating x-ray detector and x-ray resource gantry. Cone beam CT is an alternate process utilizing a wide region detector and cone-shaped x-ray beam to supply 3D photographs of a thick portion of the physique with one complete attitude (360 measure or a hundred and eighty measure plus detector insurance) rotation. It unearths purposes in events the place cumbersome, traditional CT structures may intervene with scientific strategies or can't be built-in with the first remedies or imaging platforms.


Cone Beam Computed Tomography explores the previous, current, and destiny country of clinical x-ray imaging whereas explaining how cone beam CT, with its improved spatial answer and compact configuration, is utilized in scientific purposes and animal learn. The book:




  • Supplies an in depth creation to cone beam CT, protecting easy rules and purposes in addition to complicated techniques

  • Explores state of the art examine and destiny advancements whereas analyzing the elemental barriers of the technology

  • Addresses matters concerning implementation and approach features, together with photo caliber, artifacts, radiation dose, and perception

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

  • Discusses the key parts of cone beam CT: snapshot acquisition, reconstruction, processing, and display


A reference paintings for scientists, engineers, scholars, and imaging professionals, Cone Beam Computed Tomography provides a pretty good knowing of the speculation and implementation of this innovative technology.
