We compute unmeasured cone-beam projections from projections measured by a third-generation helical volumetric computed tomography system by solving a characteristic problem for an ultrahyperbolic differential equation [John (1938)]. By working in the Fourier domain, we convert the second-order PDE into a family of first-order ordinary differential equations. A simple first-order integration is used to solve the ODEs.
