In industrial CT, it is often required to inspect large objects using short line-detectors. To acquire the complete CT data for the scanning slice of large objects using short line-detectors, some multi-scan modes have been developed. But the existing methods reconstructing an image from the data scanned by multi-scan modes have to rebin the data into fan-beam or parallel-beam form via data interpolation. The data rebinning process not only increases great computational cost, but also degrades image resolution. In this paper, we propose a backprojection-filtration (BPF)-based reconstruction algorithm for rotation-translation (RT) multi-scan mode. An important feature of the proposed algorithm is that data rebinning process is not introduced. The numerical experiment results have verified the validity of the proposed algorithm.
