Lodox statscan imaging system; A = X-ray source that produces a collimated fan beam; B = C-arm; C = X-ray detector unit, which consists of scintillator arrays that are linked to charge-coupled-devices (the unit captures X-rays from A); Y = scan direction (along the trolley length). The C-arm travels along the table length taking a series of line scans using time delayed integration to produce a single continuous image.
