An Evolutionary Approach for Object-Based Image Reconstruction Using Learnt Priors
In this paper we present a novel algorithm for reconstructing binary images containing objects which can be described by some parameters. In particular, we investigate the problem of reconstructing binary images representing disks from four projections. We develop a genetic algorithm for this and similar problems. We also discuss how prior information on the number of disks can be incorporated into the reconstruction in order to obtain more accurate images. In addition, we present a method to exploit such kind of knowledge from the projections themselves. Experiments on artificial data are also conducted.
