Paper Abstract

This paper proposes a new image reconstruction algorithm in sparse-view CT using the so-called nonlocal Total Variation (nonlocal TV) regularization. Compared to the previous work using the nonlocal TV, the proposed algorithm possesses the following three features. First, we introduce the newly developed modified nonlocal TV regularization term to preserve smooth intensity changes. Second, we utilize Passty’s proximal splitting framework to construct an accelerated iterative algorithm to minimize the cost function. Third, we introduce a novel technique called Selective Artifact Reduction (SAR) for further reduction of streak artifacts during the iteration. We demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can achieve significant image quality from 50-100 projection data with less than 20 iterations, through simulation studies using a clinical abdominal CT image.
