A new generation whole-body computed tomography system has been developed to provide accurate visualization and measurement of the vital functions of the heart, lungs, and circulation. This dynamic spatial reconstructor system (DSR) provides stop-action (01-sec), rapidly sequential (60-per-second), synchronous volume (240 simultaneous adjacent 1-mm-thick transaxial sections) reconstructions and display of the full anatomic extents of the internal and external surfaces of the heart throughout successive cardiac cycles, and will permit visualization of the three-dimensional vascular anatomy and circulatory functions in all regions of the body of patients with cardiovascular and other circulatory disabilities.
