# The Radon Transform in multiple dimensions

The Radon transform in 2D means an integral taken along a parametrized 2D linear set (normally a straight line). In multiple dimensions a linear geometrical set can mean a line or a hyperplane, the latter leads us to the multi-D generalization of our previous definition of the Radon-transform, the former gives the Ray (or X-ray) transform.

### Radon transform in multiple dimensions

Let us take the paramters to describe a hyperplane ( ), where according to the its y points the integrals are taken, ), with that we have the definition of the Radon transform for an n dimensional function: ### Ray-transform

If carry out the integral with regards to t, i.e. instead of a hyperplane we have a direction and along that we do a line integration, we obtain the other possible generalization of the 2D Radon transform, called the (X-)Ray transform. With the definitions above the Ray transform is defined as: where it is enough to take the values of x from a plane perpendicular to vector .

With these definitions we can construct the inverse of the Radon and the Ray transforms.
