Abstract
The widespread use of micro-CT in longitudinal studies is still hampered by the total absorbed dose, leading to low soft tissue contrast. We have previously developed regularized CT reconstruction applicable for sparse-view imaging and noise reduction, called SpBR-TV [2]. In this study we investigate if using SpBR-TV can increase the contrast. We show that a significant increase in soft tissue contrast can be achieved at equal noise levels, even with a 16 times dose reduction per scan.
