Paper Abstract

We present a viewpoint of studying biorthogonal wavelets by using wavelet operators. A characterization of MRA biorthogonal wavelets is given in the framework of wavelet operators. An efficient wavelet filtering algorithm based on this characterization is applied to Z-ray computerized tomography (CT) for multiresolution reconstruction and reduced X-ray exposure. Simulation results indicate that wavelet based reconstruction allows satisfactory image quality in a region of interest from local wavelet and global scaling components of projection data. The results are directly applicable to medical X-ray CT.
