The purpose of this study was to develop computationally efficient hull detection techniques appropriate for image reconstruction using sparse matrices. The hull detection techniques investigated were space carving (SC), modified space carving (MSC), and space modeling (SM) and these were compared to the cone-beam version of filtered back projection (FBP) algorithm in terms of their computation time and the quality of the object hull they produced.
