International Conference on Industrial Computed Tomography (ICT) (2014)


Quantification of a sample’s porosity from computed tomography (CT) images is important in many industrial applications. However, in non-standard acquisition set-ups (e.g., limited data or angular range), the reconstruction and subsequent segmentation of pore-space is challenging. In this paper, a novel algorithm exploiting prior knowledge about the porous structure of the scanned is proposed, improving the quality of both reconstruction and segmentation.
