We consider a multimaterial polyenergetic digital breast tomosynthesis model taking into account the polyenergetic nature of the x-ray beam and the various materials composing the object. The multimaterial polyenergetic model requires solving a large-scale, nonlinear inverse problem which is much less susceptible to beam hardening artifacts than the typically used linear monoenergetic model. We formulate the image reconstruction process as a nonlinear least squares problem and regularized iterative techniques are considered for its solution.
