Algorithms belonging to the class of pixel-based reconstruction (PBR) algorithms, which are similar to simultaneous iterative reconstruction techniques (SIRTs) for reconstruction of objects from their fan beam projections in X-ray transmission tomography, are discussed. The general logic of these algorithms is discussed. Simulation studies indicate that, contrary to previous results with parallel beam projections, the iterative algebraic algorithms do not diverge when a more logical technique of obtaining the pseudoprojections is used. These simulations were carried out under conditions in which the number of object pixels exceeded (double) the number of detector pixel readings, i.e., the equations were highly underdetermined. The effect of the number of projections on the reconstruction and the convergence (empirical) to the exact solution is shown. For comparison, the reconstructions obtained by convolution backprojection are also given.
