Abstract

The long object problem is practically important and theoretically challenging. To solve the long object problem, spiral cone-beam CT was first proposed in 1991, and has been extensively studied since then. As a main feature of the next generation medical CT, spiral cone-beam CT has been greatly improved over the past several years, especially in terms of exact image reconstruction methods. Now, it is well established that volumetric images can be exactly and efficiently reconstructed from longitudinally truncated data collected along a rather general scanning trajectory. Here we present an overview of some key results in this area.
