PET image reconstruction using the Origin Ensemble algorithm and geometric constraints

  • Moritz Schaar EMAIL logo , Thorsten M. Buzug and Magdalena Rafecas


The Origin Ensemble method allows image reconstruction of photon-limited emission tomography data to be performed entirely in the image domain. This offers attractive perspectives such as including scatter events for image reconstruction in Positron Emission Tomography. In this work, the probability of single Compton scatter along a line-of-response is estimated by the Single Scatter Simulation algorithm; for every event a decision is made whether this event is reconstructed along a line or an area confined by two circular arcs holding potential scatter points. First results of 2D simulations show visual agreement with the reference and locally increased contrast recovery coefficient values.
