Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR SCATTER ESTIMATION IN CONE-BEAM COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'ESTIMATION DE DIFFUSION DANS UNE TOMODENSITOMÉTRIE À FAISCEAU CONIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
An x-ray imaging apparatus and associated methods are provided to receive measured projection data in a primary region and measured scatter data in a shadow region and determine an estimated scatter in the primary region during a current rotation based on the measured scatter data in the shadow region from a neighboring rotation. Coverage of the shadow region during the neighboring rotation overlaps the primary region during the current rotation. A beamformer is configured to adjust a shape of the radiation beam to create the primary and shadow regions on the detector, including an embodiment to follow the Tam-Danielson window during a helical scan.
(FR)
Appareil d'imagerie par rayons x et procédés associés pour recevoir des données de projection mesurées dans une région primaire et des données de diffusion mesurées dans une région d'ombre et déterminer une diffusion estimée dans la région primaire pendant une rotation actuelle sur la base des données de diffusion mesurées dans la région d'ombre à partir d'une rotation voisine. La couverture de la région d'ombre pendant la rotation voisine chevauche la région primaire pendant la rotation actuelle. Un dispositif de formation de faisceau est conçu pour régler une forme du faisceau de rayonnement pour créer les régions primaire et d'ombre sur le détecteur, comprenant un mode de réalisation pour suivre la fenêtre Tam-Danielson pendant un balayage hélicoïdal.
