Our First Issued Interior Tomography Patent

Interior Tomography and Instant Tomography by Reconstruction from Truncated Limited-angle Projection Data by Dr. Ge Wang, Yangbo Ye, and Hengyong Yu.

A system and method for tomographic image reconstruction using truncated limited-angle projection data that allows exact interior reconstruction (interior tomography) of a region of interest (ROI) based on linear attenuation coefficient distribution of a subregion within the ROI, thereby improving image quality while reducing radiation dosage. In addition, the method includes parallel interior tomography using multiple sources beamed at multiple angles through an ROI and that enables higher temporal resolution.
