The essential concepts, design and operation of a microprocessor controlled multichannel dynamic radiograph are described. This dynamic radiograph, which detects radiation scattered from within the chest cavity, is used to accurately monitor two- and three-dimensional epicardial motion patterns. The basic concepts of the new radiograph are validated with a set of experiments on mechanical models. The results of the initial testing on experimental animals are presented.
