Sparse representations for limited data tomography

In limited data tomography, with applications such as electron microscopy and medical imaging, the scanning views are within an angular range that is often both limited and sparsely sampled. In these situations, standard algorithms produce reconstructions with notorious artifacts. We show in this paper that a sparsity image representation principle, based on learning dictionaries for sparse representations of image patches, leads to significantly improved reconstructions of the unknown density from its limited angle projections. The presentation of the underlying framework is complemented with illustrative results on artificial and real data. ©2008 IEEE.
