Wedge beam geometry - possible approach of realization and potential for scatter reduction.

Order publishers version
Special beam blocking in CBCT is proposed that allows collecting wedge-beam projections, for which the portion of x-ray scatter can be drastically reduced. The proposed method does not imply shading collected data entities. As a consequence, one avoids the problem related to loss of relevant information, which is normally inevitable in beam-blocking approaches. Additionally, the signal-to-noise ratio is not decreased, unlike in the approach involving anti-scatter grids.
