Sparse Approximation for Few View Tomographic ReconstructionMS47

Tomographic imaging from limited projections is an ill-posed problem and reconstruction algorithms rely on regularization, often sparsity-based, to improve the quality of imaging. We present a spline framework for consistent discretization in tomographic reconstruction and demonstrate its advantages for sparse approximation. Our experiments provide comparisons with commonly-used techniques such as total variation based tomographic reconstruction.
