Paper Abstract

Statistical iterative image reconstruction has become the subject of strong, active research in X-ray computed tomography (CT), primarily because it may allow a significant reduction in dose imparted to the patient. However, developing an algorithm that converges fast while allowing parallelization so as to obtain a product that can be used routinely in the clinic is challenging. In this work, we present a novel algorithm that combines the strength of two popular methods. A preliminary investigation of this algorithm was performed, and strongly encouraging initial results are reported.
