The goal of this work is to develop a stationary head CT system that would enable head imaging at Forward Operating Bases or similarareas. Without the need for moving parts, such a system could address the clinical need of cross-sectional imaging of the brain, but in amore robust imaging system. Our design relies on linear x-ray source arrays enabled by the novel carbon nanotube x-ray source. The goalsin this project extends from prototype design and development, development of reconstruction approaches and an eventual clinical trial inmedically stable head trauma patients.
