Multisource Interior Tomography Concept

Caption: With the interior tomography approach, the detector size can be much reduced so that more source-detector pairs can be integrated to focus on a region of interest for simultaneous collection of multiple local projections. The NIH-funded research is led by Ge Wang, the Pritchard Professor and director of the Biomedical Imaging Division of the Virginia Tech -- Wake Forest University School of Biomedical Engineering & Sciences and Bruno De Man, a CT authority at GE Global Research Center.
