Abstract

Today's 3rd generation CT scanners have one or two X-ray tubes, with one focal spot or source per vacuum chamber or tube. Our first multi-source inverse geometry CT prototype has eight X-ray sources. We have demonstrated multisource imaging with an 8-spot X-ray tube on a stationary gantry and a rotating phantom. We present an update on the development of the gantry-based multi-source CT scanner: we combine the multi-source X-ray tube and gantry rotation producing the first multi-source gantry-based CT scanner prototype. Currently the system is in the process of being upgraded to 32 X-ray sources to provide a larger field-of-view and to demonstrate the concept of virtual bowtie.
