Caption: Thorax and abdomen. Coloured 3-D electron beam tomography (EBT) scan of a male thoracic cavity & abdomen. EBT provides clearer and more detailed information about body tissues than CT (computed tomography) scans & reduces the time patients are exposed to dangerous radiation. EBT involves firing an electron beam against tungsten targets arranged in a 210 degree arc below the patient. These produce X-rays that pass through the patient. A computer produces cross-sectional (slice) images of the body tissues, and 3-D images can be built up by combining many slices. The ribs (upper centre), vertebral column (down centre) and pelvis (hips, lower centre) are seen.
