First experimental results of fluorescence microtomography in “pencil-beam” geometry with 6 μm resolution obtained at the ESRF/ID 22 are described. Image reconstructions are based on either a simplified algebraic reconstruction method (ART) or the filtered back-projection method (FBT). Simple cylindrical test objects are accurately reconstructed.

    Various approaches to reduce dose to the female breast in thoracic CT have been investigated. We evaluated the potential for reduction of dose to the breast by optimal choice of the X-ray spectra. The effect of X-ray energy variation on dose to the female breast in thoracic CT was examined by...
