Paper Abstract

New inversion methods for image reconstruction from Compton camera data are presented here. These methods depend upon which of two models is assumed for the data. Both of these models have been proposed previously by other researchers. Computer simulations of a mathematical phantom illustrate that a parallel projection of the distribution of the radioactivity can be produced from one positioning of the camera and a three-dimensional reconstruction of the distribution can be obtained by moving the camera 180 degrees around the distribution.
