Model-based iterative reconstruction for breast imaging

Wednesday, 19 October 2022, 11:00-12:00 in HG03.054


In this seminar I will present an overview of ongoing work on image processing and 3D reconstruction at the AXTI research group in Radboudumc, specifically focusing on the application of model-based iterative reconstruction for quantitative breast imaging. This method is based on the understanding that modelling of the relevant physics processes in the forward model will result in improved reconstruction quality (or equivalent quality starting from worse data) compared to analytic inversion through filtered backprojection.

The Advanced X-ray Tomographic Imaging (AXTI) lab focuses on novel image acquisition, processing and analysis techniques, physical and perceptual evaluation of image quality, radiation dosimetry, tomographic image reconstruction, and advanced computational simulation methods in diagnostic x-ray based imaging, especially for breast and body tomographic imaging. Our aim is to perform state-of-the-art, clinically relevant research by working side by side with clinicians from the Department of Medical Imaging at Radboudumc and in collaboration with commercial partners.
