A Deep Imaging Architecture for Sparse-View Cone-Beam CTMS58

Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for 3D orthopedic imaging produces excellent image quality of soft tissue and bone structures. Of particular interest is the ability for CBCT to acquire weight-bearing 3D images of the lower extremities, enabling examination under natural loading conditions. For patients experiencing pain, acquisition time should be minimized to reduce potential for motion. Toward this aim, we propose sparse-view acquisition sampling coupled with deep learning methods designed to reduce associated artifacts.
