Abstract

An advanced generation x-ray computed tomography scanner currently under development will be characterized by its ability to record simultaneously a sufficient number of x-ray projections to allow research and diagnostic studies of moving organs such as the heart and lungs in truly three dimensions and in real time. To achieve the requisite computer capacity, a complex of general-purpose and special-purpose computers, high-speed memories, display devices, and associated resources have been interconnected in a hierarchical star-configured network via a special-purpose communications computer designed and fabricated in our facilities. This network structure and the specially designed computational resources interconnected by it have already demonstrated significant progress toward computed tomography reconstruction processing rates of 10**9 to 10**1**0 arithmetic operations per second.
