New Techniques for Truly Three-Dimensional Image Reconstruction

  • 84 Accesses

Abstract

Three dimensional medical images are usually obtained by stacking several parallel slices, each slice being reconstructed separately, using any classical 2 dimensional reconstruction algorithm. This method allows an efficient implementation of the reconstruction, and can be used whenever the measured projection data can be factorized into independent sets, each relative to one single 2 dimensional slice. This is the case, in particular, with multi-ring positron cameras, or with SPECT systems with parallel holes collimators.
