Abstract
A new version of the Fourier Convolution algorithm in Computed Tomography is created by modifying the filter function, considering the phantom as a matrix of square pixels and taking the ray sum width equal to the pixel side. Each ray sum has a number of pixels which are partially covered by the ray sum width. This creates a weighting factor which is the correlation vector between the scanning beams and the phantom pixels. Each pixel is reconstructed more than once in each projection. A comparison of the reconstructed variable between images obtained by using the Shepp and Logan filter and the modified filter is presented. Also, the comparison between the Fourier algorithm and the new version is illustrated to compare the image quality and the running time.
