Paper Abstract

The problem of image reconstruction using a minimal complete set of projection measurements in conjunction with a standard divergent reconstruction algorithm is reviewed. It is shown that by optimally weighting the projection measurements, unimpaired image quality can be obtained. Boundary conditions are developed which minimize boundary discontinuities and resulting streaks in the final image. A simple application of calculus of variations is used to find a set of weights which satisfy the boundary conditions and which minimize second order changes in the weights. Image quality comparable to reconstruction from a full 360° data set is obtained using these weights.
