This paper presents a two-step strategy to provide a quality-predictable image reconstruction. A Pre-computed Back Projection based Penalized-Likelihood (PPL) method is proposed in the strategy to generate consistent image quality. To solve PPL efficiently, relaxed Ordered Subsets (OS) is applied. A training sets based evaluation is performed to quantify(More)
—In this paper, we present a novel statistical reconstruction method based on Compton noise suppression for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis. The physical modeling for X-ray's interaction with tissues was investigated. A Compton noise based statistical model with a conjugate prior was introduced. Results from our proposed method, Backprojection (BP) method,(More)
Digital tomosynthesis is an innovative imaging technology for early breast cancer detection by providing three-dimensional anatomical information with fast image acquisition and low-dose radiation. Most of current breast tomosynthesis systems utilize a design where a single x-ray tube moves along an arc above objects over a certain angular range. The(More)
