Abstract Deterministic method based on ray tracing technique is known as a powerful alternative to the Monte Carlo approach for virtual X-ray imaging. The algorithm speed is a critical issue in the perspective of simulating hundreds of images, notably to simulate tomographic acquisition or even more, to simulate X-ray radiographic video recordings. We present an algorithm for voxel-based deterministic simulation of X-ray imaging using voxel-driven forward and backward perspective projection operations...
