Xerographic tomography

Acta Radiologica: Diagnosis
C G HelanderK Astrand


Tomographic depiction using Xerox plates was compared with that of screen film tomography. The Xerox plates entail much higher demands as to the quality of tomographic blurring than screen film combinations. Circular or hypocycloid movements give rise to errors of depiction which are more disturbing in xerographic tomography due to the fact that the screen film combination has such properties as to be unable to record certain spurious signals present in the radiation relief, which appear in the higher-precision recording of the Xerox plates. This indicates that these plates are to be preferred if only the spurious signals can be eliminated. Suitable tomographic movements are described. To counteract the high radiation doses in xerotomography, it is suggested that specially constructed cassettes for simultaneous multisection tomography should be used.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
