Edge preserving and noise reducing reconstruction for magnetic particle imagingMS56

We develop an efficient edge preserving and noise reducing reconstruction method for MPI using a nonnegative fused lasso model. We devise a discretization adapted to the acquisition geometry of a preclinical MPI scanner and an efficient solver for that setup. Our prototype implementation processes a 3D volume within a few seconds. We demonstrate the improvement in reconstruction quality over the state-of-the-art method in an experimental medical setup for in-vitro angioplasty.
