Analytic Reconstruction and Consistency

Depending on its acquisition geometry and trajectory, the Computed Tomography (CT) image formation process can be described with a forward model like Radon or X-ray transforms. Analytic reconstruction is concerned with their description and inversion. A common property of these transforms is data redundancy, which is commonly expressed as consistency conditions on projection data. Redundancy allows for the quantification of measurement and model errors. The ARC group exploits this to devise practical algorithms for motion compensation, artifact reduction and 3D reconstruction for medical and industrial applications.

Running Projects

Epipolar Consistency

Epipolar Consistency allows us to measure how well two or more X-ray images agree given their relative geometry. By optimization over motion parameters, we can perform tracking, motion compensation and calibration correction in CT, fluoroscopy and angiography applications.


CONRAD is a software platform for simulation and reconstruction of flat-panel CT images.

Multi-material beam hardening correction in CT

The aim of the project is to effectively reduce beam hardening artifacts in datasets consisting of multiple materials.

Region of interest reconstruction in C-arm CT

3D region of interest imaging reduces the radiation dose to the patients without compromising image quailty.
