Systems And Methods For Artifact Removal For Computed Tomography Imaging
WARF: P150065US01

Inventors: Guang-Hong Chen, Jiang Hsieh

The Invention
An imaging system includes a computed tomography (CT) acquisition unit and at least one processor. The CT acquisition unit includes an X-ray source and a CT detector configured to collect CT imaging data of an object to be imaged. The at least one processor is operably coupled to the CT acquisition unit, and is configured to reconstruct an image using the CT imaging information; extract spatial frequency information from at least a portion of the image, wherein the spatial frequency is defined along a longitudinal direction; and remove a periodically recurring artifact from the at least a portion of the image based on a spatial frequency corresponding to a longitudinal collection periodicity to provide a corrected image.
