Abstract

Abstract: Compressive sensing (CS)-based interior tomography is a state-of-the-art method for accurate image reconstruction from only locally truncated projections. Here, we report our preliminary interior tomography results reconstructed from raw projections of a patient acquired on a GE Discovery CT750 HD scanner. This is the first clinical application of the CS-based interior reconstruction techniques, and the results show an excellent match with those reconstructed from global projections.
