Sinogram Denoise Based on Generative Adversarial Networks

Charalambos Chrysostomou

A novel method for sinogram denoise based on Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) in the field of SPECT imaging is presented. Projection data from software phantoms were used to train the proposed model. For evaluation of the efficacy of the method Shepp Logan based phantom, with various noise levels added where used. The resulting denoised sinograms are reconstructed using Ordered Subset Expectation Maximization (OSEM) and compared to the reconstructions of the original noised sinograms. As the results show, the proposed method significantly denoise the sinograms and significantly improves the reconstructions. Finally, to demonstrate the efficacy and capability of the proposed method results from real-world DAT-SPECT sinograms are presented.
