Paper Abstract

To reduce cupping artifacts and enhance contrast resolution in cone-beam CT (CBCT), in this paper, we introduce a new approach which combines blind deconvolution with a level set method. The proposed method focuses on the reconstructed image without requiring any additional physical equipment, is easily implemented on a single-scan acquisition. The results demonstrate that the algorithm is practical and effective for reducing the cupping artifacts and enhance contrast resolution on the images, preserves the quality of the reconstructed image, and is very robust.
