Abstract

A method is described for image reconstruction that processes the data in polar rather than rectangular coordinates and does not require backprojection. It is based on the decomposition of the object and its shadow (set of projections) into circular harmonics, or radial modulators of angular Fourier components. Inverse filters are derived that enable the radial modulators of the object to be reconstructed from those of the shadow. An optical system for reconstruction using the method is proposed.
