Recent algorithm development for image reconstruction for cone-beam CT has tackled exact image reconstruction for very general scanning configurations. The heart of the new algorithms is the concept of reconstruction on the chordn of a general source trajectory. Volume ROI reconstruction becomes possible by concatenating the chords on which the image has been obtained. For some scanning trajectories there maybe points in the image space where the image can theoretically be obtained exactly, yet no chord intersects these points. This article provides a consistency condition, based on the ideas of John's equation, that may be used to rebin cone-beam data so that all points satisfying Tuy's condition are reconstructible by a chord algorithm.
