This thesis analyzes two dimensional tomographic imaging of surface objects with negligible volume, concentrating on piecewise linear surfaces similar to folded origami. In contrast to the large number of projections usually necessary in traditional tomographic imaging, information is extracted directly from a small number of Radon projections. Furthermore, piecewise linear chains are shown to be fully characterized from just two sampled Radon projections, assuming perfect sampling resolution of these projections.
