The term generation has been applied becauseof the order in which theCTscanner designshave been introduced, and each has a number associated with it.
Progress was rapid so the fourth-generating CTimagers appeared in 1978, just 6 year after thefirst ct imager.
Unlike Hounsfield's early experiments, the patient does not move during CT, except for spiral CT rather , the x-ray source and the imagereceptor move.
