We evaluated a new 3D angiography system with a flat panel detector (FPD) for its capabilitiy to acquire volume sets during a single rotation scan and to reconstruct high spatial resolution three-dimensional and cross sectional images, namely cone beam volume computed tomography (CBVCT) images. Present status of the technique, advantages and potential applications are discussed.
