Several algorithms have been proposed for reconstructing the variable attenuation coefficients of tissues inside the skull from x-ray transmission measurements. We show that a simulated head section is accurately reconstructed by a modification, which is both fast and simple, of a previously studied algorithm. The possibility of using the algorithm to perform absolute measurements of the attenuation coefficient at points interior to the skull is high.
