Tomography is simply generation of cross-sectional images of body via any kind of penetrating wave. Today, tomography is one of the most popular medical imaging modalities that is mostly preferred for monitoring body internals to search for any kind of abnormalities. In this article, it is aimed to review some of the most successful implementations of nature-inspired algorithms used in the development of tomography technology.
