A dynamic whole body spatial reconstruction system (DSR) has been designed so that computer based three dimensional reconstruction techniques can be applied to the study of the dynamic relationships of anatomic structure to function of moving organ systems, particularly the heart and circulation in patients with cardiovascular disabilities. The urgent need for this information at a clinical as well as experimental level has resulted in a design which utilizes components which are commercially available and known to be suitable for this purpose on the basis of successful experimental results using such components. However, in view of the exploratory nature of this new generation, high temporal resolution whole body scanner, it has been designed so as to be as flexible as possible to ensure the ability to test numerous combinations of operational scanning techniques and instrument components and to allow selective replacement of components should this be required.
