This paper deals with the 3-D reconstruction of the coronary tree from a rotational X-ray projection sequence. It describes the following three stages: the reconstruction of the 3-D coronary tree at different phases of the cardiac cycle, the motion estimation, and the motion-compensated tomographic reconstruction of the 3-D coronary tree at one given phase using all the available projections. Our method is tested on a series of simulated images computed from the projection of a segmented dynamic volume sequence acquired in multislice computed tomography imaging. Performances are comparable to those obtained by reconstruction of a statical coronary tree using an algebraic reconstruction technique algorithm.
