It is well known that properly designed image reconstruction methods can facilitate reductions in imaging doses and data-acquisition times in tomographic imaging. The ability to do so is particularly important for emerging modalities, such as differential x-ray phase-contrast tomography (D-XPCT), which are currently limited by these factors. An important application of D-XPCT is high-resolution imaging of biomedical samples. However, reconstructing high-resolution images from few-view tomographic measurements remains a challenging task due to the high-frequency information loss caused by data incompleteness. In this work, a subspace-based reconstruction strategy is proposed and investigated for use in few-view D-XPCT image reconstruction. By adopting a two-step approach, the proposed method can simultaneously recover high-frequency details within a certain region of interest while suppressing noise and/or artifacts globally. The proposed method is investigated by the use of few-view experimental data acquired by an edge-illumination D-XPCT scanner.
