We study how the quality of an image reconstructed by a binary tomographic algorithm depends on the direction of the observed object in the scanner, if only a few projections are available. To do so we conduct experiments on a set of software phantoms by reconstructing them form different projection sets using an algorithm based on D.C. programming (a method for minimizing the difference of convex functions), and compare the accuracy of the corresponding reconstructions by two suitable approaches. Based on the experiments, we discuss consequences on applications arising from the field of non-destructive testing, as well.

This paper presents a new algorithm for smoothing 3D binary images in a topology preserving way. Our algorithm is a reduction operator: some border points that are considered as extremities are removed. The proposed method is composed of two parallel reduction operators. We are to apply our smoothing algorithm as an iteration-by-iteration pruning for reducing the noise sensitivity of 3D parallel surface-thinning algorithms. An efficient implementation of our algorithm is sketched and its topological correctness for (26,6) pictures is proved. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
