This is a GPU implementation of the Simultaneous Algebraic Reconstruction Technique (SART) for 2D data sets. It takes projection data and an initial reconstruction as input, and returns the reconstruction after a specified number of SART iterations. Each iteration of SART consists of an FP and BP of one single projection direction. The order of the projections can be specified.

Supported geometries: parallel, fanflat, fanflat_vec.

Configuration options

name type description
cfg.ProjectorId required The astra_mex_projector ID of the projector.
cfg.ProjectionDataId required The astra_mex_data2d ID of the projection data
cfg.ReconstructionDataId required The astra_mex_data2d ID of the reconstruction data. The content of this when starting SART is used as the initial reconstruction.
cfg.option.SinogramMaskId optional If specified, the astra_mex_data2d ID of a projection-data-sized volume to be used as a mask.
cfg.option.ReconstructionMaskId optional If specified, the astra_mex_data2d ID of a volume-data-sized volume to be used as a mask.
cfg.option.MinConstraint optional If specified, all values below MinConstraint will be set to MinConstraint. This can, for example, be used to enforce non-negative reconstructions.
cfg.option.MaxConstraint optional If specified, all values above MaxConstraint will be set to MaxConstraint.
cfg.option.ProjectionOrder optional This specifies the order in which the projections are used. Possible values are: ‘random’ (default), ‘sequential’, and ‘custom’. If ‘custom’ is specified, the option.ProjectionOrderList is required.
cfg.option.ProjectionOrderList optional Required if option.ProjectionOrder = ‘custom’, ignored otherwise. A matlab vector containing the custom order in which the projections are used.
cfg.option.GPUindex optional Specifies which GPU to use. Default = 0.
cfg.option.DetectorSuperSampling optional Specifies the amount of detector supersampling, i.e. how many rays are cast per detector.
cfg.option.PixelSuperSampling optional Specifiec the amount of pixel supersampling, i.e. how many (one dimension) subpixels are generated from a single parent pixel.
