Abstract

The recently achieved differentiability of path-tracing algorithms, which are the standard for generating photo-realistic images, opens up optimization possibilities for the 3Dreconstruction of an object using images acquired by X-ray scans. The reconstruction is accomplished by ”inverting the rendering pipeline”, which in practice means obtaining 3D scene parameters, such as volumetric data, from 2D images. The images act as a reference in our algorithm, which is optimizing the scene parameters until the image acquired by our rendered scene minimally differs from the reference image. In this publication, we represent a proof-of-concept and early experiments for differential rendering for CT reconstruction. Our implementation is able to successfully reconstruct the geometry and volume of specimens, using only images acquired from a software-simulated X-ray scan.
