Ray-tracing based method for computing projection image calculates the exact amounts of the intersection between voxels and a ray. Among several different implementations of the ray tracing based methods, Siddon's method is the earliest one. Later faster implementation such as Jacobs's method, Zhao's method, were investigated. To our knowledge, Zhao's method is the fastest one among these. We improve the speed of the Zhao's method by predicting the number of the same intersection length between voxel and a ray. In our experiment, the proposed method showed significantly faster computation speed than Zhao's method.
