Paper Abstract

In the past years we have perceived within the USCT research community a demand for freely available USCT data sets. Inspired by the idea of Open Science, this collection of data sets could stimulate the collaboration and the exchange of ideas and experiences between USCT researchers. In addition, it may lead to comprehensive comparison of different reconstruction algorithms and their results. Finally, by collecting feedback from the users about data and system architecture, valuable information is gathered for further development of measurement setups. For the above reasons, we have initiated a digital portal with several reference data sets and access scripts under free licenses. To kick off this initiative, we organized a USCT data challenge event at SPIE Medical Imaging 2017.
