A fully automated optimization algorithm for determining the 3-D patient contour from photo-peak projection data in SPECT


The class of noninverse problems versus inverse problems is discussed. A general optimization approach to solving certain constrained noninverse problems is presented. This approach is applied in the area of single photon emission computed tomography to estimate the patient outer contour directly from the photo-peak projection data. The resulting algorithm… (More)
