Paper Abstract

In this paper we investigate the benefits of a spatio-temporal approach for reconstruction of cardiac image sequences. We introduce a temporal prior based on motion-compensation to enforce temporal correlations along the curved trajectories that follow the cardiac motion. The image frames in a sequence are reconstructed simultaneously through maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation. We evaluated the performance of our algorithm using the 4D gated mathematical cardiac-torso (gMCAT) D1.01 phantom to simulate gated SPECT perfusion imaging with Tc-99m-sestamibi. Our experimental results show that the proposed approach could significantly improve the accuracy of reconstructed images without causing cross-frame blurring that may arise form the cardiac motion.
