Abstract : In X-ray transmission imaging, the collected measurements correspond to an integral operator: the Radon transform in parallel geometry and the divergent beam transform in divergent geometry. The range of these operators is characterized by conditions, which help to quantify the consistency of the measured data with the forward integral model. The first pillar of this PhD work studies range conditions in cone-beam acquisition geometry: we derive new conditions for a planar trajectory and establish a new relation between 2D fanbeam conditions and Grangeat-based conditions. The second pillar is related to the self-calibration of cone-beam systems. The acquisition geometry of the system is determined from range conditions and a parametric model of the projection geometry.
