Author Affiliations +
An image intensifier-based rotational volume tomographic angiography imaging system has been constructed. The system consists of an x-ray tube and an image intensifier that are separately mounted on a gantry. This system uses an image intensifier coupled to a TV camera as a two-dimensional detector so that a set of two-dimensional projections can be acquired for a direct three-dimensional reconstruction (3D). This system has been evaluated with two phantoms: a vascular phantom and a monkey head cadaver. One hundred eighty projections of each phantom were acquired with the system. A set of three-dimensional images were directly reconstructed from the projection data. The experimental results indicate that good imaging quality can be obtained with this system.
