We are creating a portable and high-speed tomography machine. We record all the data in a single snapshot without mechanical movement or time-division multiplexing of emitters.
Next Generation CAT-Scan Machines
General computed axial tomography (CAT or CAT-scan) acquires 3D views of a volume. The usage has been limited to specific professional applications in medical, industrial and security fields. There are two main reasons (i) X-ray sources are complex and hazardous and (ii) The machines require mechanical scanning. The fundamental concepts have remained the same for several decades and still involve highly complex machinery (See video).
