Abstract
Image reconstruction from its projections is a necessity in many applications such as medical
(CT), security, inspection and others. This paper extends the 2D Fan-beam method in [2] to three
dimensions. The algorithm, called Pyramid Beam (PB), is based on the parallel reconstruction al-
gorithm in [1]. It allows fast capturing of the scanned data. In three dimensions, the reconstructions
are based on the discrete X-Ray transform [1]. The PB based algorithms have different geometries
where simplicity of the capturing geometries is emphasized. The PB geometries are reordered to
