Model based iterative reconstruction (MBIR) algorithms have recently been applied to computed tomography and demonstrated superior image quality. This algorithmic framework also provides us the flexibility to incorporate more sophisticated models of the data acquisition process. In this paper, we present the kinetic parameter iterative reconstruction (KPIR) algorithm which estimates voxel values as a function of time in the MBIR framework. We introduce a parametric kinetic model for each voxel, and estimate the kinetic parameters directly from the data. Results on phantom study and clinical data show that the proposed method can significantly reduce motion artifacts in the reconstruction.
