Transmission scanning is needed for accurate attenuation correction in cardiac Single Photon Emission Tomography (SPET). Simultaneous emission and transmission imaging can be done using a scintillation camera with a fan-beam collimator and a line source at the focal point. The transmission data will be truncated, however, which may lead to inaccuracy in the reconstructed emission values. The authors have developed two different methods for augmentation of truncated transmission data, based on the Radon transform consistency conditions. The authors' results show that the uniformity in the myocardium can be improved with these methods, as compared to using the truncated data directly in the reconstruction
