Paper Abstract

In the present paper I wish to outline the physical principles under-lying the use of the phenomenon of Compton scattering in tomography(1)(2) (3)(4)and the reasons why not long ago it seemed like such a promising technique. Then, I would like to review the achievements to date, the limitations we have found, and by way of hopeful prediction, the ways in which these limitations may be over-come.
