SKYSCAN supplies variety of reconstruction options including multithread reconstruction by Feldkamp algorithm, InstaRecon® reconstruction based on new patented algorithms and GPU-accelerated reconstruction. All reconstruction programs are using cone-beam volumetric algorithms with automatic adaptation to particular scanning geometry in each micro-CT scanner.
Reconstructed slices can be saved in BMP, TIFF, JPG, PNG or numerical data format. Reconstruction includes beam-hardening correction, alignment optimization, ring artifact correction, reconstruction in a restricted volume of interest, reconstruction of objects larger than the field of view, external and internal calibration into Hounsfield units, defect pixel masking, interactive density window selection and many other options.
Standard NRecon, supports reconstruction by NReconServer, GPUReconServer and InstaRecon® reconstruction engines using an identical user interface. The optimized reconstruction by Feldkamp algorithm (NReconServer) and the GPU-accelerated reconstruction (GPUReconServer) are free available and standard included for all SkyScan instruments for single PC with one or two graphical cards. The InstaRecon® reconstruction engine is available as a standard for large-format scanners and as an option for other SkyScan scanners, as well as as an upgrade to existing installations.

The GPU-accelerated reconstruction in server version can be supplied as an option and can run on virtually unlimited number of computers connected to network with any number of graphical cards. As most powerful option, we can supply the GPU-cluster reconstruction with a 19" rack mounted highly optimized GPU cluster, which contains eight NVIDIA Tesla graphical cards with Kepler architecture, 144GB RAM, multiple drives connected to fastest RAID0 controller and integrated GigaBit network; everything is running under 64-bit Microsoft Windows-7 operation system.
