Extreme Few-view CT Reconstruction using Deep Inference

  title={Extreme Few-view CT Reconstruction using Deep Inference},
  author={Hyojin Kim and Rushil Anirudh and K. Aditya Mohan and Kyle Champley},
Reconstruction of few-view x-ray Computed Tomography (CT) data is a highly ill-posed problem. It is often used in applications that require low radiation dose in clinical CT, rapid industrial scanning, or fixed-gantry CT. Existing analytic or iterative algorithms generally produce poorly reconstructed images, severely deteriorated by artifacts and noise, especially when the number of x-ray projections is considerably low. This paper presents a deep network-driven approach to address extreme few… Expand

Low-Dose X-ray CT Reconstruction via Dictionary Learning
The results show that the proposed approach might produce better images with lower noise and more detailed structural features in the authors' selected cases, however, there is no proof that this is true for all kinds of structures. Expand
Lose the Views: Limited Angle CT Reconstruction via Implicit Sinogram Completion
This paper proposes to address the problem of CT reconstruction using CTNet - a system of 1D and 2D convolutional neural networks that operates directly on a limited angle sinogram to predict the reconstruction, and proposes a measure of confidence for the reconstruction that enables a practitioner to gauge the reliability of a prediction made by CTNet.

CNN-Based Projected Gradient Descent for Consistent CT Image Reconstruction
A relaxed version of PGD wherein gradient descent enforces measurement consistency, while a CNN recursively projects the solution closer to the space of desired reconstruction images and shows an improvement over total variation-based regularization, dictionary learning, and a state-of-the-art deep learning-based direct reconstruction technique.

On Image Reconstruction from a Small Number of Projections.
It is demonstrated that sometimes an algorithm based on total variation minimization produces medically-desirable reconstructions in computerized tomography (CT) even from a small number of projections, and that such a reconstruction is not guaranteed to provide the medically-relevant information.

An iterative algorithm, based on recent work in compressive sensing, that minimizes the total variation of the image subject to the constraint that the estimated projection data is within a specified tolerance of the available data and that the values of the volume image are non-negative is developed.

Conjugate-gradient preconditioning methods for shift-variant PET image reconstruction
New preconditioners that approximate more accurately the Hessian matrices of shift-variant imaging problems are described and lead to significantly faster convergence rates for the unconstrained conjugate-gradient (CG) iteration. Expand
Principles of Computerized Tomographic Imaging
The total attenuation suffered by one beam of x-rays as it travels in a straight line through an object can be represented by a line integral. Combining a set of line integrals forms a projection.Expand
