Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Backprojection Implementation

Module by: Deborah Miller, Warren Scott. E-mail the authors

Our implementation uses three pieces of Matlab code: shrinkPR, filtersinc, and backproject.

ShrinkPR

The original projection data was greatly over-sampled, taking over 20,000 samples in 400 picoseconds for each of the 360 angles. In order to reduce computation time, we uniformly reduced the number of samples and the number of angles. Our shrinkPR code takes the original PR matrix, a matrix whose columns are the projections, and outputs a smaller PR matrix with fewer samples and angles. It also creates a column vector, theta, which contains the angles of the corresponding projections.

Filtersinc

This code takes in the PR matrix and outputs the filtered PR matrix.

Figure 1 (back_eq5.gif)

It creates the ramp filter |ω| and multiplies it with the FFT of each projection. It then takes the IFFT of each filtered projection.

Backproject

Backproject implements the discrete approximation of :

Figure 2 (back_eq6.gif)

This code backprojects each of the filtered projections over the image plane and sums them together to produce the final reconstructed image. In order to implement the continuous function given discrete data points, the “round” function was used, effectively interpolating the data.

Representative Results

The following are reconstructed images:

1500 samples per projection and 360 angles:

Figure 3
Figure 3 (picture1.jpg)

From this image you can easily see the original object.

1100 samples per projection and 360 angles:

Figure 4
Figure 4 (picture2.jpg)

This image is not as clear since fewer samples were used.

1500 samples and angles 1-180.

Figure 5
Figure 5 (picture3.jpg)

From this image you can see the left half of the object since we used the first half of the projections.
