Abstract
In scintillating detectors x-rays are converted to luminescent photons with a time delay. The corresponding time resolution of the detector can have - in contrast to usual multi-slice CT - a deteriorating effect in new CT concepts with multiple sources illuminating one detector, because x-ray intensities measured here in consecutive projections correspond to the absorption along paths through very different regions of the object. A new analytical description of these effects is presented and a correction algorithm is derived. It is also shown that the detector time delay and its correction can lead to a noticeable increase of image noise.
