Description

The medical community has long practiced the art of nondestructive evaluation in its various diagnostic imaging branches. Only within about the last decade, however, has there been an attempt to provide quantitative information to the clinical radiologist. The most important example of a system providing such information is the computed x-ray tomography (CT) scanner. The resulting digitally created images portray maps of an approximation to the electron density at discrete sampling points within the subject. Density resolution of the order of 0.1% and spatial resolution reaching 0.5 mm have become readily available.
