Paper Abstract

Simulated annealing a Monte Carlolike algorithm is applied to 3D blood vessel reconstruction based on digital subtraction angiography(DSA). Since the imaging system is highly illposed because of the insufficient number of projections good reconstruction can not be achieved with only the observed data. This paper shows that even in such cases objects can be well reconstructed by simulated annealing making use of constraints based on a priori knowledge. The performance of this method for photon noise and the feasibility of 3D reconstruction are discussed through some computer simulations. 1.
