tomography, a variety of practical reconstruction algorithms have been developed to implement the process of reconstruction of a 3-dimensional object from its projections. These algorithmsare designed largely based on the mathematicsof the radon transform, statistical knowledge of the data acquisition process and geometry of the data imaging system. In medical tomography, the filtered back projectionalgorithm and its variants are the most efficient algorithms currently in use.
