Considerations for high-magnification high-cone-angle helical micro-CT

Varslot, Trond; Kingston, Andrew; Myers, Glenn; Sheppard, Adrian


This paper is motivated by our groups recent move from a conventional micro-CT system with a circular source- trajectory, to that with with a helical source-trajectory. By using a helix we can now image well beyond the limiting cone-angle of 10 degrees for a circle. We routinely perform micro-CT with cone-angles greater than 50° by using the Katsevich theoretically-exact reconstruction algorithm. Imaging with such large cone-angles enables high-signal-to-noise-ratio imaging but requires the...[Show more]
