Micro-CT has been used to study ancient teeth and showed great anatomical details (McErlain et al. 2004). 2 Coherent-Scatter CT For conventional imaging applications, scatter is an undesirable interaction between x-rays and matter because it degrades image quality. However, new imaging techniques are being developed based primarily on the scatter phenomenon (Batchelar and Cunningham 2002). Coherent-scatter CT (CSCT) produces cross-sectional images based on the low-angle (<10°) scatter properties of tissue.

There are more detectors and a greater fan-beam angle compared to the second-generation system, allowing radiation to encompass the entire cross-sectional area of the object. The translation step of image acquisition is no longer necessary. Instead, the source/detector pair simply rotates around the object. Once again, the scan time was greatly reduced since the previous generation. 20. A fourth-generation CT scanner. Multiple detectors completely encircle the specimen and only the fan-beam x-ray source rotates around the specimen ring the reconstruction.
