    Patent Number:
    US 7885371 B2
    Description:

    A method and system for image reconstruction of data acquired by a device such as computed tomography is provided. The method and system use a multi-stage statistical iterative reconstruction techniques to provide a three dimensional representation of the scanned object. In one embodiment, the first stage uses a projection-based reconstruction technique, such as Ordered Subset (OS) to converge on a solution for low frequency portion of the image. A subsequent stage uses a voxel-based reconstr…

    Patent Number:
    US 8233682 B2
    Description:

    A method of improving a resolution of an image using image reconstruction is provided. The method includes acquiring scan data of an object and forward projecting a current image estimate of the scan data to generate calculated projection data. The method also includes applying a data-fit term and a regularization term to the scan data and the calculated projection data and modifying at least one of the data fit term and the regularization term to accommodate spatio-temporal information to fo…
