Improving X-ray CT images of the Antikythera Mechanism
The Antikythera Mechanism is best described as a 2000 year old ancient greek astronomical computer. Having laid on the sea for the majority of this time its bronze interior has corroded and calcified making it incredibly fragile. X-ray CT was utilised as a non-destructive tool to analyse it, unfortunately it became apparent that the most promising scan of the main fragment was missing raw projections. In this project, those missing projections were identified by analysis of the raw data. The X-ray CT reconstruction was recomputed with irregular angular intervals resulting in the originally intended quality.
