Accurate system modeling in tomographic image reconstruction has been shown to reduce the spatial variance of resolution and improve quantitative accuracy. System modeling can be improved through analytic calculations, Monte Carlo simulations, and physical measurements. The purpose of this work is to improve clinical fully-3-D reconstruction without(More)
PET is a medical imaging modality with proven clinical value for disease diagnosis and treatment monitoring. The integration of PET and CT on modern scanners provides a synergy of the two imaging modalities. Through different mathematical algorithms, PET data can be reconstructed into the spatial distribution of the injected radiotracer. With dynamic(More)
A continuous-discrete filtering strategy is proposed for cardiac kinematics estimation from periodic medical image sequences. Stochastic multi-frame filtering frameworks are constructed to deal with the parameter uncertainty of the biomechanical constraining model and the noisy nature of the imaging data coordinately. For the system with continuous dynamics(More)
A sampled-data filtering framework is presented for cardiac motion recovery from periodic medical image sequences. Cardiac dynamics is a continuously evolving physiological process, whereas the imaging data can provide only sampled measurements at discrete time instants. Stochastic multi-frame filtering frameworks are constructed to couple the continuous(More)
Quantitative and noninvasive estimation of cardiac kinematics has significant physiological and clinical implications. In this paper, a sampled-data filtering framework is presented for the recovery of cardiac motion and deformation functions from periodic medical image sequences. Cardiac dynamics is a continuously evolving physical/physiological process,(More)
A sampled-data H<sub>infin</sub> filtering strategy is proposed for cardiac kinematics estimation from periodic medical image sequences. Stochastic multi-frame filtering frameworks are constructed to deal with the parameter uncertainty of the biomechanical constraining model and the noisy nature of the imaging data in a coordinated fashion. As robustness is(More)
