A cheap way to speed up image-reconstruction software is to use modern graphics hardware that can execute algorithms in a massively parallel manner. Here, the authors discuss Agile, an open source library designed for image reconstruction in biomedical sciences. Its modular, object-oriented, and templated design eases the integration of the library into user code.
