Iterative image reconstruction for limited angular range scanning in digital breast tomosynthesisMS7

Our work on iterative image-reconstruction applied to Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is split in two efforts: identifying optimization-based algorithms that provide useful images with few iterations, and developing image quality metrics that guide the parameter settings of the image-reconstruction algorithms. We prototype many optimization-based approaches, involving total-variation, using the Chambolle-Pock primal-dual algorithm. We also present image quality metrics tailored to the task of tumor/mass classification, and discuss the difference in image properties with respect to scan-angle.
