11 September 2014 Dual-energy iterative reconstruction for material characterisation
Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we develop a dual-energy ordered subsets convex method for transmission tomography based on material matching with a material dictionary. This reconstruction includes a constrained update forcing material characteristics of reconstructed atomic number (Z) and density (p) volumes to follow a distribution according to the material database provided. We also propose a probabilistic classification technique in order to manage this material distribution. The overall process produces a chemically segmented volume data and outperforms sequential labelling computed after tomographic reconstruction.
