Abstract
This paper considers the interior problem of CT reconstruction in which outer data are deficient in each projection. It is effective to this problem to restrict the parameters, i.e., the pixels, to be estimated to the region in which an object exists. We investigate this problem using the minimum description length principle proposed by Rissanen which is the amount of information required to describe a model based on information theory. Reconstruction algorithm and the data structure for this model to reduce amounts of calculation and memory are proposed. Finally, its effectiveness is shown by simulation.
