Banding artifact reduction for cardiac CT

Published

Journal Article

One of problems with the current cardiac CT imaging is the banding artifacts, i.e., horizontal shifts in multiplanar reformatted (MPR) or three-dimensional (3-D) images. In this work, we propose a novel gating method that does not rely on electro-cardiogram but uses the similarity of image pixel values of heart images. Moreover, the proposed method optimizes the cardiac phase on a local basis. Evaluations with 10 patient data sets showed the substantial reduction of banding artifacts as well as the improved consistency in anatomical structures. ©2008 IEEE.
