Image Reconstruction and the Solution of Inverse Problems in Medical Imaging
An overview of reconstruction methods applicable to medical tomography is given. Analytic methods based on the continuous form of the inverse Radon transform and matrix inversion and pseudoinversion methods based on a discrete formalism are presented. Statistical principles such as maximum likelihood and Bayesian estimation are also discussed.
