Rotational X-ray data acquisition in combination with gated reconstruction is applied most commonly to reconstruct 3D or 4D images of the heart on interventional X-ray systems. The data are acquired during breath hold and with intravenous contrast agent injection. Unfortunately, when using a single circular arc acquisition with parallel ECG recording, the gating of the projections leads to under-sampling artifacts in the reconstruction volume. In this contribution an artifact reduction method is suggested which is based on an initial gated reconstruction of a cardiac volume at limited quality, the subsequent segmentation of the volume and a second pass correction to enhance the signal-to-noise ratio in the reconstruction volume and to reduce the artifacts due to gating. The method is applied to both phantom and animal data.
