Paper Abstract

Reverse Geometry X-rayR (RGXR) systems, by reversing the conventional configuration of x-ray source, object, and x-ray detector, obtain (a) high contrast sensitivity due to minimal scatter detection, with (b) large-area imaging capability. Additional advantages include real-time first generation digital image quality, computerized control of scanning area and high resolution object magnification, increased freedom of source-detector alignment, and real-time stereoscopy.
