  "description": "<p>3-dimensional computerised tomography is usually reconstructed using the na\u00efve Feldkamp-Davis-Kress algorithm or FDK, which is not an exact reconstruction algorithm. This caus-<br>\nes image errors, or artefacts that appear out of the central slice, and are especially visible near edges between horizontal layers - this is demonstrated in Figure 1.<br>\nTo overcome these artefacts; one can perform multiple scans at different heights and combine the reconstructed volumes. However, exact reconstruction methods are necessary to<br>\nremove them altogether. These algorithms will also reduce the scanning time which makes them very attractive. Such methods exist, and Alexander Katsevich provided an algo-<br>\nrithm already in 2002[1]. His algorithm uses a helical scan-geometry, rotating the X-Ray source while moving it in parallel with the rotation axis - or, equivalently, scanning the ob-<br>\nject while rotating it and moving it parallel to its rotation axis. In this poster, we demonstrate that it is possible to perform and reconstruct such scans, with a Nikon XTEK scanner<br>\ndesigned for circular scans.</p>",
