Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a backprojection filtered type (BPF-type) reconstruction algorithm for cone-beam circular scans based on Zou and Pan's work. The algorithm could use all the projection data passing through the PI-line segments in 2π scanning range. Because all the projection data in 2π is used, the algorithm has a good quality for practical noisy projection data. The algorithm is implemented using numerical and practical experiments. The practical experiments were done on our X-ray CT system with a flat-panel detector. We also compare the results with FDK reconstructions. From the experimental results, we deem that the BPF algorithm could satisfy the requirement of the X-ray CT inspection.
