We will be able to shoot CT scans in 10 minutes, taking 2 hours with conventional equipment.
We achieved a resolution of 5 um now.
The left column shows the subject's chest phantom and its X-ray transmission image. As you go to the right, 1x, 5x, 10x magnified image of two tumor sites. 5x, 10x magnified image clearly shows a tumor.
A medaka CT image with a total length of 3 mm. The figure on the right shows tomography in the direction indicated by the red line in the left figure, the section is about 0.5 mm wide. Approximately 10 μm resolution has been obtained. Instead of bones, soft tissues are visible, and organs are clearly identified.
