Radiography of nonaxisymmetric objects: An onion-peeling inversion method

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An onion-peeling method for obtaining the linear attenuation coefficient distribution within a body from a single radiographic projection is presented. Unlike previous methods, which are applicable only to axi- or centrosymmetric objects, ours requires only mirror symmetry relative to the plane of the radiograph. An example of the use of the method is presented and discussed.
