3D Imaging from Video and Planar Radiography
In this paper we consider dense volumetric modeling of moving samples such as body parts. Most dense modeling methods consider samples observed with a moving X-ray device and cannot easily handle moving samples. We propose a novel method that uses a surface motion capture system associated to a single low-cost/low-dose planar X-ray imaging device for dense in-depth attenuation information. Our key contribution is to rely on Bayesian inference to solve for a dense attenuation volume given planar radioscopic images of a moving sample. The approach enables multiple sources of noise to be considered and takes advantage of limited prior information to solve an otherwise ill-posed problem. Results show that the proposed strategy is able to reconstruct dense volumetric attenuation models from a very limited number of radiographic views over time on simulated and in-vivo data.
