Paper Abstract

Feldkamp has developed an approximate cone-beam tomography reconstruction algorithm. [1] This paper presents an analysis of some of the limitations of this algorithm and proposes a post-processing algorithm, which has been studied in simulations. Preliminary results suggest that by incorporating a priori constraints on the object reconstruction, the reconstruction volume within which satisfactory results are achieved can be expanded beyond that produced by the Feldkamp algorithm.
