Paper Abstract

Recent work has stimulated considerable interest in using radar pulse compression concepts to improve the quality of medical X-ray and gamma ray photographs. (Refs. 1 and 2) These techniques involve using a coded point spread function to obtain increased resolution and reduced ex posure time. The coded point spread function allows use of a larger aperture in the X-ray camera, but requires a post-detection processing step in order to decode the data and obtain the desired image. The point spread function must be coded in such a anner that its two-dimensional autocorrelation function is very sharply peaked. In the post-detection pro cessing; the coded data are cross-correlated with the chosen point spread function to obtain the desired image.
