Abstract
An analysis of a task based simulation study of coronary artery imaging via computed tomography (CT). Evaluation of standard filtered backprojection (FBP) reconstruction and motion compensated reconstruction of a moving cylindrical vessel that contains a hyper-intense lesion. Multiple conditions are simulated including: varying rest times of the vessel and varying motion orientations. A reference image with no motion was used for all comparisons. The images were segmented and quantitative metrics for accurate segmentation were compared. The motion compensated images have consistent error metrics with respect to the static case for all rest times. The FBP reconstructions were visually inferior for shorter rest times and had significantly inferior metrics. This is the first demonstration of equivalent performance for a given task when the rest times are reduced well below the temporal aperture of the acquisition, using either advanced algorithms or different data acquisition such as multi-source geometries.
