    This paper deals with the assessment of the performance of reconstruction methods for computed tomography, including filtered backprojection and `entropy-like' methods. For each of these methods, the influence of errors in the measured data on the reconstructed image is analyzed. A small perturbation of the data vector induces a perturbation of the reconstructed object which can be computed by means of the sensitivity matrix. Using appropriate matrix computation techniques, an upper bound on the size of the reconstruction error is determined, as well as the pattern of noise in the sinogram that will result in the largest reconstruction error. Simulations will illustrate our analysis and demonstrate its utility in the interpretation of computed images and in the selection of reconstruction parameters
