6Iterative reconstruction

Previous chapters dealt with analytic image reconstruction algorithms. This chapter, on the other hand, introduces iterative image reconstruction algorithms. Due to high-speed computers, iterative algorithms get more and more attention in medical image reconstruction. This chapter describes the imaging problem as a system of linear equations and reconstructs an image by minimizing an objective function. Many algorithms are available to solve the system of linear equations or to minimize an objective function. The objective function can be set up by using the likelihood function and can also include the prior knowledge about the image. The likelihood function models the noise distribution in the projection measurements. ...
