Title: (EN) TETRAHEDRON BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY
(FR) TOMOGRAPHIE A FAISCEAU TETRAHEDRIQUE ASSISTEE PAR ORDINATEUR
Abstract: front page image
(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
