Computed tomography with proton sources

Proton computed tomography (pCT) is a new, still not commercial, imaging technique based on the use of high energy (200 - 250 MeV) proton beams, instead of conventional x-rays.

For a more detailed description of the principles of pCT, please follow this link.Some general references can be found here.
