Abstract
To expand the medical utility of X-ray Computerized Tomography System to the entire body, the system must be capable of high-speed scan to minimize the effect of voluntary and involuntary body motion. High speed (5 sec.) and fan beam geometry in which the x-ray measurements are made by a continuous rotating scanner with simultaneous data acquisition per projection appears to be an optimum technical approach in terms of performance, reliability and producibility. The technical issues of x-ray physics, dosage, scanner and computing system will be discussed in this paper.
