The mathematical analysis of exact filtered back-projection algorithms is strictly related to Radon inversion. We show how filter-lines can be defined for the helical trajectory, which serve for the extraction of contributions of particular kinds of Radon-planes. Due to the Fourier-slice theorem, Radon-planes with few intersections with the helix are associated with low-frequency contributions to transversal slices. This insight leads to different applications of the new method. The application presented here enables the incorporation of an arbitrary amount of redundant data in an approximate way. This means that the back-projection is not restricted to an n-Pi interval. A detailed mathematical analysis, in which we demonstrate how the defined filter-lines work, concludes this paper
