Are you building a new X-ray device, doing academic research or are you an end-user of CT equipment? The whole imaging chain is a very complex system and the reconstruction is one part of it. When speaking about radiography the reconstruction means a mathematical process that transforms traditional 2D X-ray images into volumetric data, usually viewed as cross sections.
There are several different algorithms for doing the reconstruction. You have probably come across of several acronyms like FDK, FBP, SART, SIRT, CBCT and many more. All of these algorithms have their own ups and downs. Understanding the aspects of reconstruction process and differences of algorithms can have huge effect on the results that you want to achieve.
We have been researching reconstruction as a mathematical and numerical process for over 20 years. If you want to learn more, don't hesitate to contact us. Lets go through your situation together and find out what can be enhanced.Max Salmi Vice President, Technology Eigenor Corporation
