Abstract
This investigation tests the hypothesis that volume anisotropy intrinsic to tomosynthetic reconstructions can be minimized through integration of contiguously sampled orthogonal projections. The basic idea involves the acquisition of data from two orthogonal projection geometries using total disparity angles of 90 degree(s) for each projection series. This allows projections at the angular extremes of one series to correspond to projections produced at opposite angular extremes of the series orthogonal to the first.
