The authors investigated the use of the kinestatic charge detector (KCD) combined with the multilevel scheme algebraic reconstruction technique (MLS-ART) for X-ray computer tomography (CT) reconstruction. The KCD offers excellent detective quantum efficiency and contrast resolution. These characteristics are especially helpful for applications in which a limited number of projections are used. In addition, the MLS-ART algorithm offers better contrast resolution than does the conventional convolution backprojection (CBP) technique when the number of projections is limited. Here, the authors present images of a Rando-head phantom that was reconstructed by using the KCD and MLS-ART. The authors also present, for comparison, the images reconstructed by using the CBP technique. The combination of MLS-ART and the KCD yielded satisfactory images after just one or two iterations.
