## Estimator for contrast agents-3 Monte Carlo simulation

In this post I continue the discussion of the paper[2], “Efficient, non-iterative estimator for imaging contrast agents with spectral x-ray detectors,” which is available for free download here. The paper extends the previous A-table estimator[1], see this post, to three or more dimension basis sets so it can be used with high atomic number contrast agents. Here I describe the Matlab code to reproduce the figures that summarize the Monte Carlo simulation of the estimators’ performance. The Monte Carlo simulation verifies that the new estimator achieves the Cramèr-Rao lower bound (CRLB) and compares it to an iterative estimator. The simulation code is included with the package for this post.
