Projekt Flat-Panel CT Reconstruction [ProjFCR]

Summary
The aim of this master project is to build a state-of-the-art flat-panel CT reconstruction software. The project is designed in two parts. In the first part, the basics of CT reconstruction will be developed in a group. In a block course after the end of the Semester, all participants will create a basic CT reconstruction pipeline that is able to reconstruct flat-panel CT images. The following topics will be taught and implemented in this two week course: - Parallel-beam reconstruction - Fan-beam reconstruction - Cone-beam reconstruction - Hardware-acceleration using the graphics card In the second part, the participants will be asked to adopt the designed pipeline individually to specific problems in CT reconstruction: - Limited field-of-view - Limited acquisition angle - Reconstruction with few projections - Noise reduction You will incorporate your work into a fully-fledged CT reconstruction and analysis tool that makes it easy to evaluate the reconstruction algorithms. At the end of the project, the designed algorithms will be tested on a real scanner at Siemens AX, Forchheim.
