Abstract

In this article, two image reconstruction techniques for radiography and tomography using cosmic ray muons are presented. The simulation is carried out using the Geant4 package, simulating a multiple coincidence system of four RPCs (Resistive Plate Chambers). The reconstruction techniques presented are based on particle trajectory reconstruction and localization of a single center of dispersion. Two functional cases are displayed for each technique.
