Other research activities performed while I was at CSULB. These activities involved a combination of computer tomography and computer graphics experiments and resulted into fascinating 3d images. Furthermore, computer simulations based on several tomographic scenarios where done and studied using a number of image reconstruction algorithms. This work is not published yet, but it may be included in my forthcoming book on digital image processing.

1. Conventional Computer Tomography Simulation
