"  Compton Camera Imaging and the Cone Transform "
  Fatma Terzioglu  


Compton Camera Imaging arises in medical diagnostics, astronomy, and lately in homeland security applications, especially when one faces a very low signal-to-noise ratio. The data provided by a Compton camera are the integrals of a source distribution function over conical surfaces, which is called the cone transform. In this presentation, we provide inversion formulas for the n-dimensional cone transform that recover the source distribution and present some numerical reconstructions.
