Abstract

Mobile devices have conquered the world from a common daily usage as e-mail to a complex application as Global Positioning System. The mobile devices have a potential to be developed as a computed device with an application to reconstruct images from computed tomography. The mobile CT application was developed to visualize the CT datasets by plotting out a test dataset to form a sinogram image on the mobile device’s screen. The image was obtained by reconstructed the CT datasets using filtered backprojection image processing algorithm. The CT datasets were filtered by using filtered datasets before the image reconstruction processes. The filtering process was a method to remove the blurring effect of the backprojection algorithm.
