C-arm computed tomography (CT) with axially extended field-of-view is valuable when imaging a long organ is desired in the interventional room. However, current C-arm CT employs a circular short scan that only provides incomplete data and short axial coverage. To enable long-object 3D imaging capability on a C-arm system, a multi-turn reverse helix is an attractive solution for data acquisition. We have implemented this trajectory on a state-of-the-art multi-axis C-arm system and performed image reconstruction using our Fusion-RFDK method. This work evaluates these reconstruction results by comparing them with those obtained from a circular short scan. We observed comparable image quality between the two source trajectories.
