    A possible method of carrying out dynamic, on-line deconvolution (or refocusing) of scintigraphic data is outlined. Basically the method consists of taking each scintillation as it arrives, and forming a continuously updated estimate of the generating (or object) distribution. In a scintigraphic image this distribution is equivalent to the normalised activity distribution in the object. Because the object distribution is obtained by carrying out a large number of interactive steps (one for each scintillation on the image), the method has been called incremental deconvolution.
