Proton Computed Tomography (pCT) is being developed in support of proton therapy and treatment planning. The aim of pCT, to reconstruct an accurate map of the stopping power (S.P.) in a phantom and, in the future, in patients, is being pursued with a diverse list of detector systems, using the entire arsenal of tracking and energy detectors developed for High Energy Physics (HEP). The first radiographs and 3D images are being reconstructed with prototype detectors, which will be described. Most of the existing systems are being upgraded to higher proton fluxes to reduce the scanning time.
