Ribcage CAT Scan Experiment

"Computed Axial Tomography" is the process of using computers to generate a three-dimensional image from flat (i.e, two-dimensional) x-ray pictures, one slice at a time... 

  1. Press the "Scan" button to make a single scan. 
  2. Now click and drag the figure on the left to turn it. (Give the computer a few seconds to catch up with you...) 
  3. Press "Scan" again...this time the new scan gets averaged into the previous one. 
  4. Continue to turn and scan. If you space your scans evenly you will get the clearest results. 30 degree increments should work well.
