The E.M.I. scanner is a machine which employs a method of X-raying patients whereby the information obtained from the X-rays is fully utilized. The high sensitivity thus obtained enables the machine to differentiate between the various organs of the body which are presented in three-dimensional form as a series of tomographic slices. The machine scans through the patient in a transaxial plane with a narrow beam of X-rays. A bank of detectors measures the transmission through the body as it… Expand
