1 October 2007 Optical implementation of the filtered backprojection algorithm
Author Affiliations +
Filtered backprojection (FBP) is the basic operation of image reconstruction algorithms in tomography. It is widely used but very time-consuming. We propose a new implementation, based on an optoelectronic architecture, providing a speedup of about two orders of magnitude over a classical digital implementation. The realization of the optical core, based on a rotated Dove prism, requires careful attention in order to ensure good image quality. This aspect has been studied in simulation with a suitable model of the architecture, and in practice with an experimental setup. Results are very encouraging.
