Intensified tomography: enhancement of soft-tissue discrimination in conventional tomography of the brain. A comparison with computed tomography.


A new technique to enhance the conventional tomographic images of soft tissues such as the brain is described. The method, called intensified tomography, optimizes the information available from conventional tomography through the use of three modifications: a specially designed filter to attenuate selectively the x-ray beam at the source to compensate for… (More)
