Abstract

It has become apparent that routine use of a scanner capable of four-dimensional (three spatial dimensions plus time) imaging of a wide variety of subjects will be impossible without the development of high-speed (i. e. , greater than 100 cross section/sec) special purpose reconstruction processors allowing processing times which are reasonable for viewing and analysis of the results. Only by achieving extremely rapid computational rates and throughput will the observer be able to review the results of each 5-10 second scan before continuing with the next procedure, as is the current practice in many clinical diagnostic and biomedical research studies.
