Electron tomography (ET) allows elucidation of the three-dimensional (3D) structure of large complex biological specimens at molecular resolution. In order to achieve such resolution levels, large projection images have to be used to compute the 3D reconstructions. Tomographic reconstruction on this scale requires a tremendous use of computational resources and a considerable processing time. In this work, we present and evaluate a highly optimized implementation of the Weighted Back-Projection… CONTINUE READING
