Two aspects of fluorescent scanning have received insufficient attention in the past. The fluorescent scanning system is inherently tomographic and is capable of almost complete rejection of activity due to tracer outside the plane of interest. The fluorescent system is also capable of providing exact quantitative determinations of tracer content. These two unique attributes may be helpful in future medical applications of x-ray fluorescence.
