This paper presents implementation of an algorithm termed as oblique surface reconstruction (OSR) on cone-beam multi-slice reconstruction. Simulations on several mathematical phantoms are performed. Theoretical consideration is reviewed and the reconstruction of simulated phantom data in comparison to the current standard 180° LI is presented. The OSR is shown to produce images with high quality when practical spiral cone-beam scanning utilizing the multi-slice configuration is considered.
