Objective: My aim is to use Julia to combine a number of complex computational tasks, one of them being creation of synthetic tomography. My search provided no results on existing Julia packages related to X-ray image reconstructions or simulating projections by modelling X-ray propagation within the studied sample.
I need both parts actually. The objective is to input a 3D image of a sample (attenuation coefficients) and then to create projections, which i later want to reconstruct back to attenuations.
Question: I would be grateful to any links or ideas of how one could use existing Julia functions or wrappings around other codes to solve this problem from Julia.
A somewhat more detailed list of objectives:
- Simulate point X-ray source
- Simulate projections with all necessary physics involved based on input 3D distribution of attenuations
- Reconstruct images from these projections
Many thanks in advance!
