A systematic method has been devised for elimination of Compton-scatter for medical ¿-ray images by three dimensional emission tomography. The approach is based upon the collision-expansion formalism which arises from the integral-transport equation and is applicable to a wide variety of object and detector configurations. Approximate correlations for point-kernels are presented which allow considerable savings in computer time and storage requirements. Results for simulated images show that… CONTINUE READING
