Paper Abstract

We describe an adaptive regularization scheme and show how to incorporate it into either the Algebraic Reconstruction Technique (ART) or Maximum Likelihood-Expectation Maximization (ML-EM) based algorithms for reconstruction of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images. We demonstrate through qualitative and quantitative experiments that the adaptive regularization technique effectively reduces the noise level in the image, while preserving the fine details of the edge structures in the image. The technique does not introduce any visible artifacts during reconstruction.
