F = fanbeam(I,D) computes the fan-beam projection data (sinogram) F from the image I. D is the distance in pixels from the fan-beam vertex to the center of rotation. The center of rotation is the center pixel of the image, defined as floor((size(I)+1)/2). D must be large enough to ensure that the fan-beam vertex is outside of the image at all rotation angles. See Tips for guidelines on specifying D. The following figure illustrates D in relation to the fan-beam vertex for one fan-beam geometry. See the FanSensorGeometry parameter for more information. Each column of F contains the fan-beam sensor samples at one rotation angle. The number of columns in F is determined by the fan rotation increment. By default, the fan rotation increment is 1 degree so F has 360 columns. The number of rows in F is determined by the number of sensors. fanbeam determines the number of sensors by calculating how many beams are required to cover the entire image for any rotation angle.For information about how to specify the rotation increment and sensor spacing, see the documentation for the FanRotationIncrement and FanSensorSpacing parameters, below.F = fanbeam(..., param1, val1, param1, val2,...) specifies parameters, listed below, that control various aspects of the fan-beam projections. Parameter names can be abbreviated, and case does not matter.'FanRotationIncrement' -- Positive real scalar specifying the increment of the rotation angle of the fan-beam projections. Measured in degrees. Default value is 1.'FanSensorGeometry' -- Text string specifying how sensors are positioned. Valid values are 'arc' or 'line'. In the 'arc' geometry, sensors are spaced equally along a circular arc, as shown below. This is the default value. In 'line' geometry, sensors are spaced equally along a line, as shown below. 'FanSensorSpacing' -- Positive real scalar specifying the spacing of the fan-beam sensors. Interpretation of the value depends on the setting of 'FanSensorGeometry'. If 'FanSensorGeometry' is set to 'arc' (the default), the value defines the angular spacing in degrees. Default value is 1. If 'FanSensorGeometry' is 'line', the value specifies the linear spacing. Default value is 1.Note This linear spacing is measured on the x' axis. The x' axis for each column, col, of F is oriented at fan_rotation_angles(col) degrees counterclockwise from the x-axis. The origin of both axes is the center pixel of the image.[F, fan_sensor_positions, fan_rotation_angles] = fanbeam(...) returns the location of fan-beam sensors in fan_sensor_positions and the rotation angles where the fan-beam projections are calculated in fan_rotation_angles. If 'FanSensorGeometry' is 'arc' (the default), fan_sensor_positions contains the fan-beam spread angles. If 'FanSensorGeometry' is 'line', fan_sensor_positions contains the fan-beam sensor positions along the x' axis. See 'FanSensorSpacing' for more information.
