Accurate and efficient simulation of an x-ray transform for representative structures plays an important role in research and development of x-ray CT, for the evaluation and improvement of CT image reconstruction algorithms, in particular. Superquadrics are a family of three-dimensional objects, which can be used to model a variety of anatomical structures. In this paper, we propose an algorithm for the computation of x-ray transforms for superellipsoids and tori with a monochromatic x-ray… CONTINUE READING
