An emission transaxial tomographic system using a scintillation camera as the detector is described. The unit allows accurate positioning of a scintillation camera's detector at any angle around a patient in order to obtain the multiple projection images needed for transaxial tomography, and it is capable of imaging any area of the body. The camera can also… CONTINUE READING
