Future of CT technology -Interior Tomography
According to an article in Diagnostic Imaging- "Engineers at Virginia Tech – Wake Forest University and GE Global Research Center are developing a prototype cardiac CT scanner built on the concept of “interior tomography.” This concept calls for up to seven x-ray sources focused on a region of interest; in this case, the heart. The beams generate data that are processed to mathematically “skip” the bone and muscle that otherwise degrade image quality and necessitate high radiation dose."
Looks like we have something more to look forward in terms of technology from Conventional CT to Spiral CT to Multislice CT to Dual Energy Source CT to.... Future sure looks exciting.
