Paper Abstract

Simulated data can play an important role in many research topics in the field of X-ray computed tomography (CT). Most existing tools lack the flexibility, the ease of use, or possibilities to incorporate own routines to fulfill all needs of researchers. We propose a novel, modular C++ open-source simulation toolkit that provides full flexibility for system setups, acquisition geometry, forward projection models, as well as physical effects to be considered in the simulation. All mentioned aspects are freely customizable (and extendable) to grant users full control to tailor the toolkit to their specific needs. Here, we present an early version which is under active development. By that, we want to encourage the community to provide feedback and suggestions already at an early stage of development.
