Image of a Shepp-Logan Phantom used primarily in Tomography reconstruction

The Shepp–Logan phantom is a standard test image created by Larry Shepp and Benjamin F. Logan for their 1974 paper The Fourier Reconstruction of a Head Section. It serves as the model of a human head in the development and testing of image reconstruction algorithms.[1][2][3][4]
