Constrained SART algorithm for inverse problems in image reconstruction

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper we integrate the SART (Simultaneous Algebraic Reconstruction Technique) algorithm into a general iterative method, introduced in [8]. This general method offers us the possibility of achieving a new convergence proof of the SART method and prove the convergence of the constrained version of SART. Systematic numerical experiments, comparing SART and Kaczmarz-like algorithms, are made on two phantoms widely used in image reconstruction literature.
