Paper Abstract

It is well known that in CT image is obtained on the basis of information about absorption of the primary x-rays going from the source through the object under study. Scattered radiation, occurring in this case, is usually an interfering factor, where in thick objects, for example, inside a human body, about 10 secondary scattered photons per one primary photon occur. This scattered radiation can also be used for purposes of object imaging. This article describes a principally new device, in which scattered radiation is used very efficiently. The idea of the device and new method has been patented.
