Multi-parameter X-ray Computed Tomography (MXCT) Methods and Systems

Description:
The MXCT method combines scattered with traditional attenuated imaging. This approach enables greater sensitivity and specificity, especially for soft biological tissues. Additional advantages include improved contrast of CT images and reduced radiation dosage. Potential applications include biomedical imaging as well as nondestructive testing.
