Three-dimensional iterative reconstruction algorithms with attenuation and geometric point response correction

G.L. Zeng, G.T. Gullberg, B.M.W. Tsui, J.A. Terry
1991 IEEE Transactions on Nuclear Science  
For parallel, fan, and cone beam geometries, iterative reconstruction algorithms have been developed which eliminate these artifacts by incorporating the three-dimensional spatially varying geometric point  ...  Parallel, fan and cone beam ray-tracing geometries. A simulation was performed with a Gaussian phantom which had a FWHM of 11.303 voxels.  ...  Then the third do-loop traces along the ray, determining the contribution to the projection bin of each voxel intersected by the ray.  ...

Colors everywhere: enhanced chromatic processing across the first visual synapse in the zebrafish central brain [article]

Drago A Guggiana Nilo, Clemens Riegler, Mark Hübener, Florian Engert
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Larval zebrafish (Danio rerio) are an ideal organism to study color vision, as their eye possesses four types of cone photoreceptors, covering most of the visible range and into the UV [1,2].  ...  To obtain each trace, the traces from each voxel in an ROI were averaged together.  ...  Inset shows the average delta F/F traces for these functional clusters.  ...

Scalable Spherical Harmonics Hierarchies

Jonathan B. Metzgar, Sudhanshu K. Semwal
2020 Journal of WSCG  
Voxel cone tracing [CNS + 11] is a recent method which projects lighting into a sparse octree and traces cones from surface geometry using final gathering.  ...  Figure 6 shows the process of voxel cone tracing. Rather than tracing rays, VCT proceeds by building a spatial subdivision data structure in which to propagate a light solution.  ...

Simplified Voxel Based Visualization

Péter Mileff, Judit Dudra
2019 Production Systems and Information Engineering  
Voxel-based technology has already been present in the early years of computer visualization. However its usage was almost entirely confined to the field of medical image synthesis.  ...  This publication presents a simplified visualization model and optimization techniques, which are able to visualize smaller (perhaps animated) voxel sets in real-time with certain compromises.  ...  Due to the evolution of the GPU, mainly the approaches using some kind of ray-based technology (ray-tracing, cone tracing etc.) are showing progress.  ...

Fast high-resolution micro-CT with exact reconstruction methods

T. Varslot, A. Kingston, A. Sheppard, A. Sakellariou, Stuart R. Stock
2010 Developments in X-Ray Tomography VII  
In this paper, we present some challenges which arise when adopting this approach in a high-resolution cone-beam micro-CT system.  ...  We employ a helical scanning trajectory, accompanied by an exact reconstruction method to avoid the artifacts resulting from the use of large cone-angles with circular trajectories.  ...  Simple ray tracing shows that a source spot of radius r will project the delta function to a blurry spot of diameter r(L − R)/R.  ...

Real-time dose computation: GPU-accelerated source modeling and superposition/convolution

Robert Jacques, John Wong, Russell Taylor, Todd McNutt
2010 Medical Physics (Lancaster)  
The authors introduce the concepts of arc superposition and delta superposition.  ...  Superposition/convolution was implemented using the inverse cumulative-cumulative kernel and exact radiological path ray-tracing.  ...  Lastly, full dose deposition can be calculated for the subset of voxels that would normally be affected by a delta dose computation.  ...
