Presented in this paper is an evolutionary approach to the problem of CT image reconstruction: an evolutionary algorithm (EA) is used to reconstruct CT images from a limited number of projection data, where conventional methods (e.g. Algebraic Reconstruction Techniques ART) solution tends to be unsatisfactory. We use traditional as well as adapted genetic operators in our evolutionary approach to the CT image reconstruction problem. The evolutionary algorithm yielded good results that challenge the conventional ART.
