Method and system for iterative reconstruction

Patent

Description

A method for reconstructing an image of an object, the image comprising a plurality of image elements, is disclosed. The method includes accessing image data associated with the plurality of image elements, applying a first algorithm to the plurality of image elements, selecting a spatially non-homogenous set of the plurality of image elements, and applying an iterative algorithm to the set of image elements to reduce an amount of time necessary for reconstructing the image, or to improve an image quality at a fixed computation time, or both.
