3D image reconstruction in CT

2009-2010

The goal of the project is to development a method for 2D-to-3D reconstruction of rock samples from images, obtained by means of X-ray microtomography. The project requires the folowing:

  • understanding technical scheme and details of X-ray microtomography unit
  • comprehensive analysis of existing algebraic algorithm for 2D-to-3D reconstruction
  • compute platform selection: CPU & GPU options are to be evaluated
  • development, coding and improvement of a new algorithm for accurate and less time-consuming 2D-to-3D reconstruction

The first series of images shown here is the Shepp-Logan Phantom test sample pictured by X-ray microtomography. The second series of images represent several slices from the 3D model, reconstructed from the test sample pictures by our method.
