Abstract
We have developed a CT scanner with high temporal and spatial resolution which can be used to acquire dynamic images of objects undergoing periodic motion. Our system comprises of an x-ray image intensifier (XRII) optically coupled to a linear photo-diode array (PDA) camera. The XRII has been modified to vary electronically the magnification of the image continuously over fields-of-view (FOV) ranging between 8 and 24 cm, and thus increasing the resolution from 1.4 mm-1 to 3.8 mm-1. In this way, we can select a magnification which maximizes the image resolution for a given object.
