his function is an automated acquisition process that acquires several images while the tube is moving in an arc across the region of interest, similar to the more conventional topographic movement. The series of images is then processed in a cone beam or CT-type back projector resulting in a volume of data available for investigation by scrolling through it in a series of slices. Slice thickness can be post-processed in a similar manner to that used in CT imaging. Slices of interest can be extracted as required for further investigation, printing and DICOM storage.
