The mathematical basis is described of a new radiographic method by which an arbitrarily thick layer of the patient may be reconstructed. The reconstruction is performed from at least 60 images of the volume under examination. Each of these images, which have to be in digital form, is subjected to a special filtration process of its spatial frequencies. The combination of all the images will form the resulting image of the layer--the ectomogram. The method has been analysed and tested in experiments simulated with a computer.
