PURPOSE Cardiac x-ray CT imaging is still challenging due to heart motion, which cannot be ignored even with the current rotation speed of the equipment. In response, many algorithms have been developed to compensate remaining motion artifacts by estimating the motion using projection data or reconstructed images. In these algorithms, accurate motion(More)
PURPOSE Because of high diagnostic accuracy and fast scan time, computed tomography (CT) has been widely used in various clinical applications. Since the CT scan introduces radiation exposure to patients, however, dose reduction has recently been recognized as an important issue in CT imaging. However, low-dose CT causes an increase of noise in the image(More)
Even though the X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) scan is considered suitable for fast imaging, motion-artifact-free cardiac imaging is still an important issue, because the gantry rotation speed is not fast enough compared with the heart motion. To obtain a heart image with less motion artifacts, a motion estimation (ME) and motion compensation (MC) approach(More)
