Algebraic Reconstruction Techniques

  • Robert Cierniak


The group of algorithms known by their initials algebraic reconstruction techniques (ARTs) is the second most popular family of reconstruction methods. However, ART techniques belong in turn to a broader methodology, which makes use of finite series expansion [4, 5, 15, 16, 18].
