Abstract
The sampling geometry of CT-scanners plays an important role in the reconstruction of images. We have previously reported a test-device that directly collects the Radon data within a special scanning geometry, whose acquired data can be efficiently treated with series expansion algorithms such as, for example, OPED (Orthogonal Polynomial Expansion on Disc). This geometry has the potential of reducing the radiation exposure of the patient by about a factor of two. However, a fourth of the data must be obtained by interpolation within the measured projections. In this contribution, we show by a Monte Carlo simulation that this interpolation has no significant influence on the quality of the reconstructions.
