Abstract

Spatial distribution of pulmonary blood flow has been studied using scans of the external surfaces of the thorax of living dogs and chimpanzees and of cross sections of embedded lungs following embolization with isotope tagged microspheres using a computer driven scintiscanner. Visualization of the three-dimensional count rate surfaces of the isotopic emboli distribution and of long outlines has been achieved on a computer driven oscilloscope through a technique which creates the illison of three dimensions on a photographic image of the display.
