Code Samples

The software used to generate many of the tomographic images in this book is available. The parallel beam reconstruction at the top of this page was generated with the commands
gen n=100 k=100 if=lib.d.s
filt n=100 k=100
back n=100 k=100
disn min=1.0 max=1.05
The software is available in either a Unix TAR format file, or in Unix shell archive format.
