Abstract
We investigate the use of the kinestatic charge detector (KCD) together with the multi-level scheme algebraic reconstruction technique (MLS-ART) for computer tomography (CT) reconstruction, to be used in position verification in radiotherapy. The KCD offers very good contrast resolution, which is especially useful given the low number of projections we are aiming at. We present the images reconstructed using a head phantom (Rando-phantom) using a total of 95 projections, and a standard low contrast CT phantom using 63 projections. The reconstruction was carried out using MLS-ART technique, in this technique satisfactory images are generally obtained after one or two iteration, which in effect makes ART a noniterative algorithm. We also present the CT images obtained using the back projection technique for comparison purposes.
