Apparatus for slit radiography

Image Number 5 for United States Patent #4741012.

An apparatus for slit radiography which comprises an X-ray source and a slit diaphragm through which a body to be examined can be scanned by a planar X-ray fan beam. The slit diaphragm is operatively associated with a plurality of juxtaposed tongue-shaped attenuation elements, which elements are arranged for having their free ends swung to a greater or lesser extent into the X-ray beam so as to effect a local attenuation of the beam. The tongue-shaped attenuation elements form at least one flared configuration as seen from the X-ray source.
