Computed Tomography is the technique of estimating the interior of objects from the measurements of radiation projected through the object. (used in modern medicine to provide a 3D view inside the body)  CTSim is a Computed Tomography simulator.  It simulates the process of obtaining x-ray data around a phantom object. It then uses various reconstruction algorithms for reconstructing the original image. It supports animation of projection and reconstruction processes, 3-dimensional viewing using the OpenGL API as well as cross platform support using GTK and Win32.
