Coded-aperture imaging of the heart combines the advantages of tomography with good sensitivity, high resolution, and accurate size scaling. Since the images are multiplexed, the method may be adapted to small, portable cameras for bed-side use without sacrificing image resolution. A new coded aperture designed especially for cardiac imaging has been constructed and tested. This aperture incorporates significant improvements over previous designs. Longitudinal tomograms are calculated at 1-cm… CONTINUE READING
