A system and method for obtaining a composite image by combining multiple sub-images are provided. In some embodiments, the method may include retrieving overlapping images corresponding to sub-images including 3D volume data, generating two-dimensional (2D) projection images and pixel maps based on the overlapping images, performing one or more registrations based on the 2D projection images and the pixel maps, calibrating the sub-images based on the results of the registration(s), and fusing the sub-images to produce a composite image. In some embodiments, the method may include setting a plurality of parameters relating to an X-radiation source or a radiation detector based on a preliminary number of exposures and a preliminary exposure region, controlling, based on at least one of the plurality of parameters, a motion of the X-radiation source or a motion of the radiation detector to capture a plurality of sub-images, and combining the plurality of sub-images.

The present disclosure relates to a tank of a high-voltage generator including a tank body and a tank lid. There is an opening in the tank lid. The opening is connected to the bellows so as to counteract the volume change of the transformer oil and avoid generation of bubbles. The tank includes a positive transformer, a negative transformer, a bellows, and other components. The high-voltage winding is embedded in the PCBs. The outer insulating bushing is covered by the PCBs so as to improve the insulativity between the turns of the high-voltage winding. In addition, oil barriers may be placed between the positive and the negative transformers,or between the transformers and the ground so as to eliminate the bridge breakdown effect and make the electric field uniform. By means of said measures, the present disclosure improves the stability of the high-voltage generator.
