Abstract:
(EN) A method of imaging an object that includes directing a plurality of x-ray beams (212) in a fan-shaped form towards an object (P), detecting x-rays (212) that pass through the object (P) due to the directing a plurality of x-ray beams and generatmg a plurality of imaging data regarding the object from the detected x-rays The method further includes forming either a three-dimensional cone-bea computed tomography, digital tomosynthesis or Megavoltage image from the plurality of imaging data and displaying the image
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé d'imagerie d'un objet qui consiste à diriger une pluralité de faisceaux de rayons X en forme d'éventail vers un objet, détecter les rayons X qui traversent l'objet par le fait de diriger une pluralité de faisceaux à rayons X et générer une pluralité de données d'imagerie concernant l'objet à partir des rayons X détectés. Le procédé consiste en outre à former une image soit par tomodensitométrie à faisceau conique tridimensionnel, tomosynthèse numérique ou tension de l'ordre du mégavolt à partir de la pluralité de données d'imagerie et afficher l'image.
