IDOL-Net: An Interactive Dual-Domain Parallel Network for CT Metal Artifact Reduction

by   PetsTime, et al.

Due to the presence of metallic implants, the imaging quality of computed tomography (CT) would be heavily degraded. With the rapid development of deep learning, several network models have been proposed for metal artifact reduction (MAR). Since the dual-domain MAR methods can leverage the hybrid information from both sinogram and image domains, they have significantly improved the performance compared to single-domain methods. However,current dual-domain methods usually operate on both domains in a specific order, which implicitly imposes a certain priority prior into MAR and may ignore the latent information interaction between both domains. To address this problem, in this paper, we propose a novel interactive dualdomain parallel network for CT MAR, dubbed as IDOLNet. Different from existing dual-domain methods, the proposed IDOL-Net is composed of two modules. The disentanglement module is utilized to generate high-quality prior sinogram and image as the complementary inputs. The follow-up refinement module consists of two parallel and interactive branches that simultaneously operate on image and sinogram domain, fully exploiting the latent information interaction between both domains. The simulated and clinical results demonstrate that the proposed IDOL-Net outperforms several state-of-the-art models in both qualitative and quantitative aspects.
