Paper Abstract

Image reconstruction from sparse-view data in 2D fan-beam CT is investigated by constrained, total-variation minimization. This optimization problem exploits possible sparsity in the gradient magnitude image (GMI). The investigation is performed in simulation under ideal, noiseless data conditions in order to reveal a possible link between GMI sparsity and the necessary number of projection views for reconstructing an accurate image. Results are shown for two, quite different phantoms of similar GMI sparsity.
