The method of convex projections is applied to reconstruct an image in computer tomography. This appears to the first time that the method has been used to obtain geometry-free reconstruction from ray-sum data. It is shown that a special set of convex projections duplicates the result of the algebraic reconstruction technique (ART). The similarities and differences of these two methods are discussed. It is pointed out that use of a priori information enhances the quality of the results, especially when partial data have been used, in which case ART fails. Simulations and reconstruction of a CT image are also furnished to demonstrate the feasibility of this method
