Reliable automatic alignment of tomographic projection data by passive auto-focus

Kingston, Andrew; Sakellariou, Arthur; Varslot, Trond; Myers, Glenn; Sheppard, Adrian


Purpose: The authors present a robust algorithm that removes the blurring and double-edge artifacts in high-resolution computed tomography (CT) images that are caused by misaligned scanner components. This alleviates the time-consuming process of physically aligning hardware, which is of particular benefit if components are moved or swapped frequently. Methods: The proposed method uses the experimental data itself for calibration. A parameterized model of the scanner geometry is constructed and...[Show more]
