Chapter 41. Parallelization of Katsevich CT Image Reconstruction Algorithm on Generic Multi-Core Processors and GPGPU
Abderrahim Benquassmi, Eric Fontaine and Hsien-Hsin S. Lee
41.1. Introduction, Problem, and Context
Medical imaging is one of the most computationally demanding applications. Radiologists and researchers in related areas such as image processing, high-performance computing, 3-D graphics, and so on, have studied this subject extensively by using different computing facilities, including clusters, multicore processors, and more recently, general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPU) to accelerate various 3-D medical image reconstruction algorithms. Because of the nature of these algorithms and the cost-performance consideration, ...
