Exact image reconstruction for a circle and line trajectory with a gantry tilt
We investigate image reconstruction with a circle and line trajectory with a tilted gantry. We derive new equations for reconstruction from the line data, such as equations of filtering lines, range of filtering lines and range of the line scan. We analyze the detector requirements and show that the line scan does not impose extra requirements on the cylindrical detector size with our algorithm, that is, the axial truncation of the filtering lines does not occur. We discuss full-scan and short-scan versions of the algorithm. Evaluation of our algorithm uses simulated and real 256-slice data.
