PET detectors provide the information of the position, the energy and the timing about the decay events on the LOR. Traditional PET image reconstruction has not taken the timing information into account, only used the timing information for coincidence judgments. The high timing resolution PET detectors provide very precise TOF information, then TOF image reconstruction method which utilizes the timing information of PET detectors is so crucial for the TOF PET system. We take advantage of…

Accurate image reconstruction from few-views and limited-angle data in divergent-beam CT

This work develops and investigates an iterative image reconstruction algorithm based on the minimization of the image total variation (TV) that applies to divergent-beam CT and can be generalized to cone- beam CT as well as other tomographic imaging modalities.

Evaluation of sparse-view reconstruction from flat-panel-detector cone-beam CT

Investigation and evaluation of image reconstruction from data collected at projection views significantly fewer than what is used in current CBCT imaging demonstrate that, depending upon scanning conditions and imaging tasks, algorithms based on constrained TV-minimization can reconstruct images of potential utility from a small fraction of the data used in typical, currentCBCT applications.

Outstanding Timing Resolution of Pure CsBr Scintillators for Coincidence Measurements of Positron Annihilation Radiation

An outstanding timing resolution of 75 ps at full width at half maximum (FWHM) has been achieved in coincidence measurement of positron annihilation radiation. Pure CsBr crystals characterized by an

Robust uncertainty principles: exact signal reconstruction from highly incomplete frequency information

It is shown how one can reconstruct a piecewise constant object from incomplete frequency samples - provided that the number of jumps (discontinuities) obeys the condition above - by minimizing other convex functionals such as the total variation of f.
