Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on minimizing the time requirement for CT capture through an innovative simultaneous X-ray capture method. The concept was presented in previous publications with synthetically sampled data from a synthetic phantom. This paper puts emphasis on real data reconstruction where a physical 3D phantom consisting of simple geometric shapes was used for the experiment. For a successful reconstruction of the physical phantom, precise calibration of the setup is ensured in this work. Targeting better reconstruction from minimal number of iterations, the sparsity prior CT reconstruction algorithm proposed by Saha et al. [11]was adapted to work in conjunction with the simultaneous X-ray capture modality. Along with critical evaluations of the experimental findings, this paper focuses on optimal parameter settings to achieve a given reconstruction resolution.
