Development and Optimization of Regularized Tomographic Reconstruction Algorithms Utilizing Equally-Sloped Tomography
We develop two new algorithms for tomographic reconstruction which incorporate the technique of equally-sloped tomography (EST) and allow for the optimized and flexible implementation of regularization schemes, such as total variation constraints, and the incorporation of arbitrary physical constraints. The founding structure of the developed algorithms is EST, a technique of tomographic acquisition and reconstruction first proposed by Miao et al. in 2005 for performing tomographic image reconstructions from a limited number of noisy projections in an accurate manner by avoiding direct interpolations. EST has recently been successfully applied to coherent diffraction microscopy, electron microscopy, and computed tomography for image enhancement and radiation dose reduction. However, the bottleneck of EST lies in its slow speed due to its higher computation requirements. In this paper, we formulate the EST approach as a constrained problem and subsequently transform it into a series of ...
