Methods, systems and processes for providing efficient, accurate and exact image reconstruction using portable and easy to use C-arm scanning devices and rotating gantries, and the like, that combines both a circle and a curve scan. The invention can provide exact convolution-based filtered back projection (FBP) image reconstruction by combining two curved scans of the object. The curved scan can be less than or greater than a full circle about an object being scanned. The invention can be done by a first curve within a first plane followed by a second curve within a second plane that is transversal to the first plane.
