An optoelectronic tomographic reconstruction system utilizes spacial light modulators in charge couple devices to perform projection iterative reconstruction techniques and simultaneous iterative reconstruction techniques. A back projection processor uses a linear array of analog spacial light modulators in a cylindrical lens, an image detection array, and an image rotator. The image rotator smears a projected image at the same angle as the projection was taken. The back projection processor thus smears the projection back to the image space. An optoelectronic forward projection processor uses an spacial light modulator array, an image rotator, and an image detecting array. A reconstructed image displayed by the spacial light modulator is smeared by the rotator to forward project the reconstructed image on the image detecting array at the same angle as when the measured projection was taken. The forward projection processor thus smears the reconstructed image back into the projection space.
