A tomographic reconstruction algorithm is developed for the nonoverlapping redundant array x-ray imaging system whereby the background contributions from out-of-focus planes can be eliminated. The algorithm makes use of two constraints derived from the physical characteristics of the nonoverlapping redundant array system in tandem with the correlation decoding process. It is simple, direct, and noniterative. Tomographic images of computer-generated planar and three-dimensional objects are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the algorithm.
