Abstract

An iterative method of reconstructing degraded images is developed from consideration of a mixed-noise imaging situation. Both photon noise in the image itself and postdetection Gaussian noise are combined by use of the standard maximum-likelihood method to produce a mixed-expectation reconstruction technique that demonstrates good performance in the presence of both noise sources. The new algorithm is evaluated through computer simulations.
