Paper Abstract

Theoretically, the ramp filter for filter backprojection reconstruction in X-ray computed tomography (CT) is a generalized function, expressed as |ω| in the frequency domain and -1/(2π2t2) in the real space. The traditional method for designing a practical filter is to select a curve in the frequency domain which is close to the function |Οω| in some sense. Similarly, to design a practical filter one also can select a function in the real space which approximates the function -1/(2π2t2). Several approximations are studied, leading to either known or new filters. The image reconstructed using the new filter is comparable with that using the band-limited filter.
