Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL POUR TOMODENSITOMÉTRIE
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus for performing tomographic imaging of an object comprising means for conveying the object through a first imaging means and a second imaging means which are static relative to the conveying means and are comprised of at least one source and detector. The source illuminates the detector with a beam to obtain a tomographic slice with the tomographic slice of the first and second imaging means being coplanar. Between the two imaging means the movement involves a change of direction of motion of the object in the same plane as the tomographic slice whilst maintaining the objects orientation relative to the apparatus.
(FR)
Appareil permettant de réaliser une imagerie tomographique d'un objet comprenant des moyens pour acheminer un objet à travers un premier moyen d'imagerie et un second moyen d'imagerie qui sont statiques par rapport au moyen d'acheminement et qui sont constitués d'au moins une source et d'un détecteur. La source éclaire le détecteur avec un faisceau pour obtenir une coupe tomographique, les coupes des premier et second moyens d'imagerie étant coplanaires. Entre les deux moyens d'imagerie, le mouvement implique un changement de direction du mouvement de l'objet dans le même plan que la coupe tomographique, l'orientation des objets par rapport à l'appareil étant maintenue.
