Efficient CT Metal Artifacts Reduction Based on Improved Conductivity Coefficient
In this paper, we propose a efficient metal artifacts reduction method based on improved conductivity coefficient for computed tomography (CT) and the numerical implementation of our method is also given. The experiment results show that on both visual effect and peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR), the method we propose is superior to conditional interpolation methods and classic total variation model.
