ICOS is a modular software system for the 3-dimensional reconstruction of icosohedral particles from 2-dimensional projections. Noise in the resulting reconstructions is due to many sources including ringing artifact due to finite sampling of Fourier transforms and is comparable with many of the desired components representing particulate structure. This paper describes a method for reducing ringing artifact without significant loss of resolution. Application of a Blackman window to the original Fourier transforms significantly improves the signal to noise ratio by suppressing ringing artifact but reduces resolution in the fmal reconstruction. Taking a voxel by voxel minimum of the filtered and unfiltered 3-dimensional reconstruction restores the original resolution while retaining the enhanced SNR. 2.
