Abstract

The authors describe a film-recorded computed tomographic (CT) scanner that uses optical processing methods for reconstruction of a sectional image. Results are comparable to commercial CT methods using the same patient dose. Consequently, clinically satisfactory CT imaging can be performed at a substantially reduced cost.
