  • In two dimensions, we consider the problem of inversion of the attenuated $ X $-ray transform of a compactly supported function from data restricted to lines leaning on a given arc. We provide a method to reconstruct the function on the convex hull of this arc. The attenuation is assumed known. The method of proof uses the Hilbert transform associated with $ A $-analytic functions in the sense of Bukhgeim.

    Figure 2.  Setting of numerical experiments. The gray regions correspond to the support of the source $ f $, whereas the dotted circles delineate regions of high attenuation. Note that $ f $ is to be reconstructed only in the upper semi-disc

The red curves are their polar coordinate representation $ \{ (u(\zeta,\theta),\theta) \::\: \theta \in {{\mathbf S}^ 1}\} $ and that at $ \zeta = (0,1) $ is magnified in the right graph. The pink areas show the regions of (known) higher absorption
