**Reconstruction of objects containing circular cross-sections**Lajos Rodek rodek@inf.u-szeged.hu Supervisor: Attila Kuba Ph.D. University of Szeged, Hungary, Department of Applied Informatics Zoltán Kiss kissz@inf.u-szeged.hu SSIP 2003**The encountered problem**• Tomography • Nondestructive substance examination • Neutron mapping Draft structure of the 3D object A cross-section to be reconstructed Result of a classic method • Using few projections (acquisition is time consuming and expensive)**Reconstruction of 3D objects**• Discrete tomography • Input: few projections (2-4) • a priori information: • geometrical structure (spheres) • range (attenuation coefficients) • Output: 3D model**Reduction to 2D**• Subproblem: reconstruction of 2D cross-sections • Assumptions: • known number of circles • at most four different substances**Acquisition of projections**• Projection: • Given: projections (p), directions, number of beams • Unknown: F, implicit parametric function to be reconstructed (4-valued)**Parametres of F**• Number of circles • Attenuation coefficients • Radii • Centres • Restrictions: • disjointness • minimal & maximal radii • circles are within the ring**Mathematical description**• Given:few projections with known number of circles & beams • Sought solution: configuration of parametres, which determines a function having projections of the best approximation of input data (p) ?**Difficulties**• Switching components • Superposition of projections • Noisy input data**Implemented algorithm**• Considered as optimization problem • Iteratively looking for a global optimum by random modification of parametres from an initial configuration**Choosing a new configuration**Adjustment of radius, centre or attenuation coef. of one of the circles, in agreement with the restrictions radius centre attenuation coefficient**Optimization**• Objective function: • Random choice of a new configuration • If , will be accepted • Else choosing another • Termination, if or no better solution is found in a certain number of iteration steps**Simulated annealing**• Fundaments: thermodynamic cooling process • Boltzmann-distribution: (1) • If , will be accepted in accordance with (1)**Effects of changing the number of projections**using 2, 3 & 4 noiseless projections Real conf. Initial conf. Reconstructed conf. Difference 2 projs 3 projs 4 projs**Effects of noise**Additive noise of uniform distribution 0% 5% 10% 20%**Results from noisy projections**using 4 projections, in case of 5, 20 & 40% of noise Real conf. Initial conf. Reconstructed conf. Difference Noise 5% 20% 40%**Encountered problems on real data**• Precessing axis of revolution • Distorted, noisy projections • Low resolution • Too few quantization levels • Attenuation coefs are unknown they should be estimated automatically**Data from Berliner Hahn-Meitner Institut**0 45 90 135 Result of convolution backprojection from 60 projections Result of our method from 4 projections seen above**Summary**• A new reconstruction method has been implemented based on real physical measurements: • the effects of increasing the number of circles, projections & the amount of noise have been examined • Good results may be achieved from 4 projections even in case of greater amount of noise • Future plans: • extension to 3D • deformable models**References**• A.
