Paper Abstract

A system has been developed for performing longitudinal tomography via reconstruction of a small number (28) of digitally recorded images. This technique, 'digital tomosynthesis', allows the user to select any number of desired tomographic planes in post processing, from a single patient exposure lasting a few seconds. Results will be shown from a short clinical trial at UC Irvine with the prototype system.
