Fast and Scalable Computation of the Forward and Inverse Discrete Periodic Radon Transform
—The discrete periodic radon transform (DPRT) has extensively been used in applications that involve image reconstructions from projections. Beyond classic applications, the DPRT can also be used to compute fast convolutions that avoids the use of floating-point arithmetic associated with the use of the fast Fourier transform. Unfortunately, the use of the DPRT has been limited by the need to compute a large number of additions and the need for a large number of memory accesses. This paper introduces a fast and scalable approach for computing the forward and inverse DPRT that is based on the use of: 1) a parallel array of fixed-point adder trees; 2) circular shift registers to remove the need for accessing external memory components when selecting the input data for the adder trees; 3) an image block-based approach to DPRT computation that can fit the proposed architecture to available resources; and 4) fast transpositions that are computed in one or a few clock cycles that do not...
