System and method of iterative image reconstruction for computed tomography

Patent

Description

A non-transitory computer readable storage medium having stored thereon a computer program having instructions, which, when executed by a computer, cause the computer to acquire a set of projection data corresponding to a plurality of image voxels and to calculate coefficients of a regularizing function configured to penalize differences between pairs of the plurality of voxels that are not immediate neighbors. The instructions also cause the computer to iteratively reconstruct an image from the set of projection data based on the regularizing function.
