Paper Abstract

In this work, we investigate the non-linear partial volume (NLPV) effect caused by sub-detector sampling in CT. A non-linear log-sum of exponential data model is employed to describe the NLPV effect. Leveraging our previous work on multispectral CT reconstruction dealing with a similar non-linear data model, we propose an optimization-based reconstruction method for correcting the NLPV artifacts by numerically inverting the non-linear model through solving a non-convex optimization program. A non-convex Chambolle-Pock (ncCP) algorithm is developed and tailored to the non-linear data model. Simulation studies are carried out with both discrete and continuous FORBILD head phantom with one high-contrast ear section on the right side, based on a circular 2D fan-beam geometry. The results suggest that, under the data condition in this work, the proposed method can effectively reduce or eliminate the NLPV artifacts caused by the sub-detector ray integration.
