The bandwidth of the slip ring, through which the data has to be transmitted from the rotating detector to the static part of the gantry, has to multiply in correspondence with the number of detector lines. The reconstruction problem changes drastically, from a fan beam geometry to a cone beam geometry, for which only recently a mathematical approach for an exact solution has been found18. A detailed discussion of the state-of-the-art in reconstruction technology is given in Chapter 3. 3 Positron emission tomography (PET) PET images the 3-dimensional distribution of a tracer, which has been injected into the human (or animal) body.

However, the conversion from X-rays into digital signals is not performed directly, but requires an intermediate (analog) storage step in photostimulable phosphors9. Only recently, a new technology based on large area amorphous silicon plates has been introduced to the market, which converts the incoming X-rays either via a photoconductor layer10,11 or via a scintillator/photodiode combination12,13 directly into digital signals. This technology is explained in detail in Chapter 4. Fluoroscopic imaging initially relied on fluorescent screens.
