Abstract

Iterative convolution, a technique for limited-data tomographic reconstruction, is based on constrained iteration between a source function’s estimated image and its Radon transform. For certain source functions, the estimated image diverges from the source function. This divergence is shown to result from the algorithm’s failure to enforce consistency between the estimated image and its measured Radon transform. To correct for this, consistency can be enforced by using a routine based on the direct-inversion formula and on decomposing the image into components generated from its measured and missing Radon-transform integrals. This routine was used to develop a new iterative scheme that converges absolutely for three test objects for which simple iterative convolution diverges.
