  title={3D Image Reconstruction from X-Ray Measurements with Overlap},
  author={Maria Klodt and Raphael Andreas Hauser},
3D image reconstruction from a set of X-ray projections is an important image reconstruction problem, with applications in medical imaging, industrial inspection and airport security. The innovation of X-ray emitter arrays allows for a novel type of X-ray scanners with multiple simultaneously emitting sources. However, two or more sources emitting at the same time can yield measurements from overlapping rays, imposing a new type of image reconstruction problem based on nonlinear constraints… 

Non-Linear 3d Reconstruction For Compressive X-Ray Tomosynthesis

A non-linear 3D reconstruction approach for compressive X-ray tomosynthesis, where a set of coding masks are used to generate structured illumination and reduce radiation dose is proposed.

Meshless reconstruction technique for digital tomosynthesis

A novel meshless reconstruction algorithm for Digital Tomosynthesis (DT) does not require a three-dimensional grid or mesh allocation and performs a slice-by-slice reconstruction where each slice position can be chosen at runtime.

Nonlinear Compressed Sensing for Multi-emitter X-Ray Imaging

This paper proposes a model that exploits the structure of the nonlinearity and a nonlinear tomosynthesis algorithm that has a practical running time of solving only two linear subproblems at the equivalent resolution and underpin and justify the algorithm by deriving RIP bounds for the linear sub problems.



Expectation maximization and total variation-based model for computed tomography reconstruction from undersampled data

This work proposes a method combining expectation maximization and total variation regularization, called EM+TV, which can reconstruct a better image using fewer views in the computed tomography setting, thus reducing the overall dose of radiation.

Simultaneous correspondence and non-rigid 3D reconstruction of the coronary tree from single X-ray images

We present a novel approach to simultaneously reconstruct the 3D structure of a non-rigid coronary tree and estimate point correspondences between an input X-ray image and a reference 3D shape. At

Rectangular Fixed-Gantry CT Prototype: Combining CNT X-Ray Sources and Accelerated Compressed Sensing-Based Reconstruction

This paper presents a laboratory prototype CT system that uses CNT multibeam X-ray tubes; a rectangular, nonrotating imaging geometry; and an accelerated compressed sensing-based iterative reconstruction algorithm, and demonstrates that the prototype reconstructed images have image quality comparable with a conventional CT system.

A Fast Voxel Traversal Algorithm for Ray Tracing

A fast and simple voxel traversal algorithm through a 3D space partition is introduced that is a variant of the DDA line algorithm and allows for simpler traversal at the expense of more voxels.

A first-order primal-dual algorithm for non-smooth convex optimization problems with known saddle-point structure can achieve O(1/N2) convergence on problems, where the primal or the dual objective is uniformly convex, and it can show linear convergence, i.e. O(ωN) for some ω∈(0,1), on smooth problems.

An efficient algorithm for compressed MR imaging using total variation and wavelets

This work proposes an efficient algorithm that jointly minimizes the lscr1 norm, total variation, and a least squares measure, one of the most powerful models for compressive MR imaging, based upon an iterative operator-splitting framework.

Integration of Multiview Stereo and Silhouettes Via Convex Functionals on Convex Domains

The key idea is to show that the reconstruction problem can be cast as one of minimizing a convexfunctional where the exact silhouette consistency is imposed as a conveX constraint that restricts the domain of admissible functions.

A Randomized Ensemble Approach to Industrial CT Segmentation

This paper presents a new ensemble-based segmentation framework for industrial CT images demonstrating that comparatively simple models and randomization strategies can significantly improve the result over existing techniques.

Transmission type flat-panel X-ray source using ZnO nanowire field emitters

A transmission type flat-panel X-ray source in diode structure was fabricated. Large-scale patterned ZnO nanowires grown on a glass substrate by thermal oxidation were utilized as field emitters, and

Signal Recovery by Proximal Forward-Backward Splitting

We show that various inverse problems in signal recovery can be formulated as the generic problem of minimizing the sum of two convex functions with certain regularity properties. This formulation
