We consider the problem of reconstructing a 2D bandlimited signal from its nonuniform samples taken in polar coordinates. We introduce two nonuniform sampling strategies in polar coordinates and develop algorithms for reconstructing the signal from these samples. The proposed methods collect nonuniform samples along concentric circles or radial lines, where the circles or lines are nonuniformly distributed. We then apply these methods to the problem of reconstruction of tomographic images and show through simulations that they result in a higher quality of reconstruction with respect to the traditionally used algorithms.
