Tomography from Multiview Ultrasonic Diffraction Data: Comparison with Image Reconstruction from Projections

Part of the Acoustical Imaging book series (ACIM, volume 10)


The tomographic mode of imaging is a powerful aid to noninvasive diagnostics. By computerised data assembly, image slices of a 3-D object showing internal structure can be presented to the observer since the probing radiation penetrates through the object. This imaging procedure is unusual since it would appear not to have any close analogue in Nature.
