Ramp test objects for slice sensitivity profile measurement in spiral CT.

Abstract

Spiral CT is increasingly becoming a routine imaging technique in the UK. The ability to scan whole organs within a single breath-hold often demands that the scan pitch (ratio of the patient translation distance per tube rotation (d) to the collimated slice thickness) be increased within technically acceptable limits.
