The course focuses on the problem of three-dimensional (3D) image reconstruction from line integrals, which constitute a mathematical model of measurements in computed tomography (CT), and particularly x-ray computed tomography. Analytical and iterative reconstruction methods are investigated for various geometries of data acquisition. A critical goal is to provide the student with the essential tools required to understand papers on tomographic image reconstruction, from x-ray CT to emission CT, and also with a clear understanding of how efficient and accurate reconstruction algorithms are designed, using the Fourier slice theorem and backprojection techniques. MATLAB laboratories and a computer project are given in support of the theory.
