General Artifact Reduction Scheme for Laminography
Laminography is an imaging method that visualizes a plane of a three-dimensional object using multiple x-ray imaging [1,2]. A laminograph is produced by aligning features in the component radiographs for a particular “plane of focus”and averaging the radiographs to emphasize the features of interest. Due to the averaging process, relative strong features in another plane, while being reduced in intensity, may still be visible after the laminographic process and may cause incorrect human interpretations. A general artifact reduction scheme for laminography is presented in this paper.
