Calculation Of Additional Projection Data From Projection Data Acquired With A Divergent Beam
WARF: P06161US

Inventors: Guang-Hong Chen

The Invention
A data consistency condition is derived for an array of attenuation values acquired with a divergent beam. Using this data consistency condition, estimates of selected attenuation values can be calculated from the other attenuation values acquired during the scan. Such estimates may be used to replace corrupted data in the acquired data set, or attenuation values may be added to the acquired data set to increase in-plane resolution of a reconstructed image.
