Abstract Upon discerning the mere shape of an imaged object, as portrayed by projected perimeters, the full three-dimensional scattering density may not be of particular interest. In this situation considerable simplifications to the reconstruction problem are possible, allowing calculations based upon geometric principles. Here we describe and provide an algorithm which reconstructs the three-dimensional morphology of specimens from tilt series of images for application to electron tomography. Our al... Title of program: STOMO version 1.0 Catalogue Id: AEFS_v1_0 Nature of problem Electron tomography of specimens for which conventional back projection may fail and or data for which there is a limited angular range. The algorithm does not solve the tomographic back projection problem but rather reconstructs the local 3D morphology of surfaces defined by varied scattering densities.
