This paper investigates the reconstruction of Single-Photon Electron Computed Tomography (SPECT) data from nuclear medicine. We used a technique known as Filtered Backprojection, and achieved excellent results reconstructing a number of phantom images as well as actual data obtained from M.D. Anderson in Houston. We have concluded that Filtered Back Projection is an extremely effective technique for reconstruction. Future investigation in this field should include further study of filter optimizations as well as other reconstruction techniques.
