Octopus Reconstruction - Scanner independent

Octopus is designed to accept input data from various data sources and scanning geometries. Octopus processes raw projection data acquired in the following geometries:

  • Parallel beam: synchrotron and neutron sources
  • Fan beam: high energy X-ray tubes and gamma sources
  • Cone beam: X-ray tubes
  • Helical cone beam: X-ray tubes

Our software has been used intensively at neutron sources, synchrotron and X-ray tube set-ups and is therefore adapted to cope with a variety of image types. Octopus handles images stored in the TIFF format, but is supplemented with a conversion routine which accepts PNG, FITS, BMP, JPEG and various other file formats.
