Motion and Positional Error Correction for Cone Beam 3D-Reconstruction with Mobile C-Arms

C. Bodensteiner, C. Darolti, H. Schumacher, L. Matthäus, A. Schweikard


CT-images acquired by mobile C-arm devices can contain artefacts caused by positioning errors. We propose a data driven method based on iterative 3D-reconstruction and 2D/3D-registration to correct projection data inconsistencies. With a 2D/3D-registration algorithm, transformations are computed to align the acquired projection images to a previously reconstructed volume. In an iterative procedure, the reconstruction algorithm uses the results of the registration step. This algorithm also reduces small motion artefacts within 3D-reconstructions. Experiments with simulated projections from real patient data show the feasibility of the proposed method. In addition, experiments with real projection data acquired with an experimental robotised C-arm device have been performed with promising results.
