Reconstruction Algorithms and Scanning Geometries in Tomographic Imaging

  • Oleg Tischenko
  • Christoph Hoeschen


In general tomographic imaging consists of two steps: the acquisition of data and the reconstruction. Thereby the following triple problem has to be solved: choose an efficient reconstruction algorithm, identify the optimal sampling conditions imposed on measured data as required by this reconstruction algorithm, and find an efficient way of collecting such data in the practice.
