Matlab interface to the projection simulator

Tag: Implementation,Physics,softwareadmin @ 3:45 pm

edit: Oct. 4, 2011 The C++ code referred to in this post has been superseded by a Matlab only version that is faster and has more geometric shapes. The Matlab function uses the approach described here so it gives similar results.
My last post discussed C++ code for a CT projection simulator. In this post, I will describe a Matlab interface to the simulator executable.

A projection simulator for image reconstruction research–rationale

edit: Oct. 4, 2011 The C++ code referred to at the end of this post has been superseded by a Matlab only version that is faster and has more geometric shapes. The Matlab function uses the approach described here so the rationale is still valid.
Simulators are essential tools in CT research. They provide data with known properties to test reconstruction algorithms and simulations of complete systems. Matlab provides simulators with the radon and fanbeam functions of the Image Processing Toolbox. However, these functions specify the object as a raster image, which leads to large artifacts in the projections and in the reconstructed images.
