A method is introduced to compensate for missing projection data that can result from gas between detectors or from malfunctioning detectors. This method uses constraints in the Fourier domain to estimate the missing data, thus completing the data set so that the filtered backprojection algorithm can be used to reconstruct artifact-free images. The image reconstructed from estimates using this technique and a data set with gaps is nearly indistinguishable from an image reconstructed from a complete data set without gaps, using a simulated brain phantom
