Scanning Methods and Reconstruction Algorithms for Computerized Tomography
The development of computerized tomography has undoubtedly been the most significant advancement in the x-ray field since the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Konrad Roentgen in 1895. Although conventional medical roentgenography was valuable in evaluating tissues with large differential densities, it could not clearly distinguish most soft-tissue structures and displayed overlapping, superimposed shadows of the area under investigation.
