Refraction corrected transmission ultrasound computed tomography for application in breast imaging

Li, Shengying; Jackowski, Marcel; Dione, Donald P; Varslot, Trond; Staib, Lawrence H; Mueller, Klaus

Description

Purpose: We present an iterative framework for CT reconstruction from transmission ultrasound data which accurately and efficiently models the strong refraction effects that occur in our target application: Imaging the female breast. Methods: Our refractive ray tracing framework has its foundation in the fast marching method (FNMM) and it allows an accurate as well as efficient modeling of curved rays. We also describe a novel regularization scheme that yields further significant reconstruction...[Show more]
