Tilted gantry helical cone-beam Feldkamp reconstruction for multislice CT

Image Number 10 for United States Patent #7154986.

An X-ray computed tomography apparatus includes a helical scanning device configured to collect projection data while at least one of a gantry and a couch moves along a body axial direction of an object on the couch when at least one of the gantry and the couch is tilted, the helical scanning device including an X-ray source configured to generate X-rays, and a detector disposed opposite the X-ray source and having detector elements arranged in a plurality of rows along the body axial direction, and a reconstructing device configured to reconstruct an image based on the projection data using cone-beam Feldkamp reconstruction.
