DOI
A picture of three reconstructions from the data using different numbers of projections.
"Ground truth" reconstruction computed from 1200 projections using FBP (left), Tikhonov reconstruction from 120 projections (middle), and Tikhonov reconstruction from 20 projections.

This is an open-access dataset of tomographic X-ray data of a walnut. The dataset consists of the X-ray sinogram of a single 2D slice of the walnut with three different resolutions and the corresponding measurement matrices modeling the linear operation of the X-ray transform. Each of these sinograms was obtained from a measured 120-projection fan-beam sinogram by down-sampling and taking logarithms. The original (measured) sinogram is also provided in its original form and resolution.

In addition, a larger set of 1200 projections of the same walnut was measured and a high-resolution filtered back-projection reconstruction was computed from this data; both the sinogram and the FBP reconstruction are included in the dataset, the latter serving as a ground truth reconstruction.

The data is licensed under an open data license (CC BY 4.0) and it is hosted on Zenodo.

Gel phantom data for dynamic X-ray tomography

Tommi Heikkilä, Hanna Help and Alexander Meaney

DOI
Reconstructions of a gel phantom using Tikhonov regularization and FBP
Reconstructions from selected time steps. Top row: Tikhonov regularization, 30 projections. Bottom row: FBP, 360 projections.

This is an open-access dataset of tomographic X-ray data of a dynamic agarose-gel phantom perfused with a liquid contrast agent. The dataset consists of 17 consecutive X-ray measurements of a 2D slice of the gel phantom. This data is provided in two resolutions and stored in a special CT-data structure containing the metadata of the measurement setup.

In addition a denser projection sampling of the first time step, and a very dense sampling of an addition 18th time step is provided as a complementary data.

The data does not contain the corresponding forward operators as is, but allows for easy creation of computationally efficient matrix-free operators and FBP reconstructions, both on CPUs and on CUDA cabable GPUs. The use of said operators is also demonstrated with short example codes.

The data is licenced under an open data licence (CC BY 4.0) and it is hosted on Zenodo.
