Résumé

In this work, a novel physics-rich beam-hardening correction algorithm was developed for X-ray Computed Tomography. This method uses the spectrum information, the detector response, the filter geometry and a calibration curve. The correction, which does not require prior material knowledge, was embedded in an iterative reconstruction algorithm, and simulates the beam-hardening by estimating the X-ray spectrum at each voxel in the forward projection step. As a result, beam-hardening artifacts are inherently reduced in reconstructed images. For a regular reconstruction matrix of 512 pixels × 512 pixels, processing times of approximately ∼5 s per slice were obtained using a four GPU setup. This method was also compared to the dual-energy beam-hardening correction method proposed by Alvarez and Macovski, which it outperforms when high-Z elements are involved.
