Abstrakt: Mammography is used as an early detection system for breast cancer, which is one of the most common types of cancer, regardless of one’s sex. Mammography uses specialised X-ray machines to look into the breast tissue for possible tumours. Due to the machine’s set-up as well as to reduce the radiation patients are exposed to, the number of X-ray measurements collected is very restricted. Reconstructing the tissue from this limited information is referred to as limited angle tomography. This is a complex mathematical problem and ordinarily leads to poor reconstruction results. The aim of this work is to investigate how well a neural network whose structure utilizes pre-existing models and known geometry of the problem performs at this task. In this preliminary work, we demonstrate the results on simulated two-dimensional phantoms and discuss the extension of the results to 3-dimensional patient data.
