In this paper, the use of nonseparable wavelets for tomographic reconstruction is investigated. Local tomography is also presented. The algorithm computes both the quincunx approximation and detail coefficients of a function from its projections. Simulation results showed that nonseparable wavelets provide a reconstruction improvement versus separable wavelets.

FBP and the interior problem in 2D tomography

We consider the Filtered Back Projection reconstruction method in the case of interior data in Computerized Tomography. In this framework we prove that the difference between the FBP reconstruction

Nonseparable wavelet-based cone-beam reconstruction in 3-D rotational angiography

A fast low-resolution reconstruction of the 3-D arterial vessels with the progressive addition of details in a region of interest is demonstrated and the improvement of image quality by denoising techniques and also the reduction of computing time using the space localization of wavelets.

Multiresolution reconstruction in fan-beam tomography

Simulations on mathematical phantoms show that wavelet decomposition is acceptable for small beam angles but deteriorates at high angles, and an approximate reconstruction formula based on a near-radial quincunx multiresolution scheme is proposed.

The proposed algorithm for combining the two data sets using the discrete wavelet transform and the Haar wavelet is compared to a previously reported method that involves padding of the high resolution data with a supersampled version of the low resolution data, and to zero padding and edge extension, using synthetic data sets.

Filtered backprojection method and the interior problem in 2D tomography

We address here the interior problem in local tomography, by means of Filtered Back Projection (FBP). This algorithm, traditionally used in the context of complete data, is usually not considered as

Multiresolution local tomography in dental radiology using wavelets

The proposed wavelet-based multiresolution method is used to reduce the number of unknowns in the reconstruction problem by abandoning fine-scale wavelets outside the region of interest (ROI).

Practical error estimation in zoom-in and truncated tomography reconstructions.

This article uses existing theoretical results to estimate the error present in truncated and zoom-in tomographic reconstructions and proposes a practical method for estimating the error in Zoom-in and truncated tomographies.

Bayesian multiresolution method for local tomography in dental x-ray imaging

Compared to traditional voxel-based models, this multiresolution approach allows significant reduction of degrees of freedom without loss of accuracy inside the ROI, as shown by 2D examples using simulated and in vitro local tomography data.

Region‐of‐interest tomography using filtered backprojection: assessing the practical limits

It is found that for a wide range of objects the effect of truncation on feature detection is negligible and that excellent images can be reconstructed if the number of projections is calculated not on the basis of the numbers of pixels on the camera, but on thenumber of pixels that would be required to scan the whole sample at the chosen pixel resolution.



Multiresolution tomographic reconstruction using wavelets

It is shown how the separable two-dimensional wavelet representation leads naturally to an efficient multiresolution tomographic reconstruction algorithm, which can be significantly reduced, compared to a standard reconstruction.

In this paper we explain how the local tomography approach to tomographic problems can be extended to a wide range of situations including limited data problems, attenuated transforms, and

The Mathematics of Computerized Tomography covers the relevant mathematical theory of the Radon transform and related transforms and also studies more practical questions such as stability, sampling,

Wavelet-based multiresolution local tomography

The proposed method uses the properties of wavelets to localize the Radon transform and can be used to reconstruct a local region of the cross section of a body, using almost completely local data that significantly reduces the amount of exposure and computations in X-ray tomography.

Wavelet localization of the Radon transform

An algorithm which significantly reduces radiation exposure in X-ray tomography, when a local region of the body is to be imaged, is developed, which uses the properties of wavelets to essentially localize the Radon transform.

It is shown that the difference of information between the approximation of a signal at the resolutions 2/sup j+1/ and 2/Sup j/ can be extracted by decomposing this signal on a wavelet orthonormal basis of L/sup 2/(R/sup n/), the vector space of measurable, square-integrable n-dimensional functions.

We use the theory of the continuous wavelet transform to derive inversion formulas for the Radon transform on L 1 \L 2 (R d). These inversion formulas turn out to be local in even dimensions in the
