Title: Methods and apparatus for helical multi-frame image reconstruction in a computed tomography fluoro system including data communications over a network

Abstract: A method for producing a base tomographic image and a subsequent tomographic image of an object using projection data acquired in a scan with a system which includes an x-ray source and a detector array which includes a plurality of detectors. The method includes applying a segmentation algorithm to the projection data to generate base image data comprising a plurality of segments; generating image data for each segment; generate subsequent image data based on image data of each segment; and communicating image data, segments, subsequent image data, or base image data to a remote facility via a network. The remote facility provides remote services.
