    Patent Number:
    US 9020230 B2
    Description:

    A method for reconstructing an image of an object that includes a plurality of image elements. The method includes accessing image data associated with a plurality of image elements, and reconstructing an image of the object by optimizing an objective function, where the objective function is optimized by iteratively solving a nested sequence of approximate optimization problems. The algorithm is composed of nested iterative loops, in which an inner loop iteratively optimizes an objective fun…

    Patent Number:
    US 9460485 B2
    Description:

    A method includes obtaining spectral computed tomography (CT) information via an acquisition unit having an X-ray source and a CT detector. The method also includes, generating, with one or more processing units, using at least one image transform, a first basis image and a second basis image using the spectral CT information. Further, the method includes performing, with the one or more processing units, guided processing on the second basis image using the first basis image as a guide to pr…
