At this point, is clear that system comprises three big modules:

1) Xray generation

2) Projection Acquisition

3) Data Processing

Since this endeavor is revamp a system, the idea is to replace/update only 3,) or perhaps 2) and 3). Of course, nobody lets modify a working system to do Tests or Proof of concept. Then i need to figure out how to do it.

Here is a system that uses as Data Processing a couple of SGI´s computers: The Left is a Octane computer, the right side is an O2 system, without plastic covers. SGI computers were used in the commercial enviroment by graphic designers and audiovisual producers. this is my start point to find open source software to do the job.
