Abstract
The full value of tomography as a diagnostic procedure cannot be achieved with currently available techniques because they do not permit utilization of the total information obtained in a single tomographic exposure. Time-resolved acquisition and storage of this information, however, permits reconstruction of any desired layer from a single patient exposure, thereby increasing substantially the diagnostic value of tomography. Although this time-resolved system achieves sectional radiography using geometrical techniques similar to those commonly practiced in modern radiology departments, it'has two unique aspects: recognition of the fact that all of the sample, not just one layer, is projected clearly on the image sensing plane at any instant during the exposure, and development of a method for storing this information so that any desired layer may be displayed without need for further patient exposure.
