Abstract

We aim to estimate internal slice of the scattering material by Computed Tomography (CT). In the scattering material, the light path is disturbed and is spread. Conventional CT cannot measure the scattering material because they rely on the assumption that rays are straight and parallel. We propose light path alignment to deal with scattering rays. Each path of disturbed scattering light is approximated with a straight line. Then the light path in the object corresponding to a single incident ray is modeled as straight paths spreading from incident point. These spreading paths are aligned to be parallel, so that they can be used directly by conventional reconstruction algorithm.
