Paper Abstract

The KCT system is designed for performing computed tomography (CT) imaging using the components of a real time radiography (RTR) system. The equipment necessary for CT imaging is provided as an RTR upgrade the components of KCT include a computer data acquisition system image processor and rotating mechanical stage. When integrated into an RTR system KCT provides the object scanning motion required for CT converts the analog video signal to digital data processes the data and displays the resulting cross-sectional CT images. The KCT computer is based on a PC compatible the data acquisition system and image processor are on AT boards in the computer. Because of its compact size inexpensive components and use of existing radiation source and detector KCT is available at a much lower cost than competing industrial CT systems. 1.
