A new decision rule for parameter delta in MAP EM (OSL) reconstruction with the Gibbs prior



A new decision rule for parameter delta in MAP EM (OSL) reconstruction with the Gibbs prior



Annals of Nuclear Medicine 10(3): 299-305



In MAP EM (OSL) reconstruction with the Gibbs prior, the parameter delta which appears in the prior is commonly treated as a fixed value. Because the quality of reconstructed images depends on this parameter, we have to select delta very carefully, and because the statistics of an image vary locally, we should not choose a single delta value for each image. We propose a new decision rule to select an appropriate local delta. In our proposed method, delta is determined as the median of the differences between a value of the pixel of interest and those of neighboring pixels. This selection yields an appropriate prior depending on the regional statistics. The prior therefore preserves the edge property without amplifying statistical noise and it is not necessary to know the appropriate delta value to obtain high quality images. We performed computer simulations to determine the effectiveness of the proposed method. The results showed that the quality of reconstructed images obtained with the proposed method was superior to those obtained with the prior with a fixed delta.
