This paper addresses the task of image reconstruction from an incomplete set of projection data. Several methods which first estimate the missing data and then utilize standard reconstruction algorithms to obtain an image are investigated. Results from simulations are presented which illustrate the difficulty in comparing algorithms objectively, particularly when a simple test phantom is chosen. The incorporation of a priori information into the algorithm, an approach which has previously been discussed in the literature, is shown to produce faster convergence.
