Exploiting structural similarities in multi-energy tomographic reconstructionsMS33

One limitation of computed tomography is that no bijective relation exists between the composition of the material and the greyscale value in the reconstruction. More information on the material composition can be obtained by performing multiple scans using different X-ray energies, which in turn leads to technical issues with aligning the projections from different energies. We propose a technique based on structural similarities, which allows reconstructing the object at multiple energies without projection alignment. Additionally, we will introduce the openly available tomographic datasets from the University of Helsinki, including multi-energy CT data.
