PyTorch bindings for PYRO-NN (

Project description

PyPI version


This repository provides PyTorch bindings for PYRO-NN, a collection of back-propagatable projectors for CT reconstruction.

From PyPI:

pip install pyronn-torch

From this repository:

git clone --recurse-submodules --recursive
cd pyronn-torch
pip install torch
pip install -e .

You can build a binary wheel using

python bdist_wheel

#                  projection_matrices)

    (128, 128, 128),
    (2.0, 2.0, 2.0),

               [-1.00e+00,  0.00e+00,  0.00e+00,  6.00e+2]],
              [[-2.89009888e+2, -1.20522754e+3, -1.02473585e-13,

                6.00000000e+2]]]) # two projection matrices
projection = projector.new_projection_tensor(requires_grad=True)

projection += 1.
result = projector.project_backward(projection, use_texture=True)

assert projection.requires_grad
assert result.requires_grad

loss = result.mean()

Or easier with PyCONRAD (pip install pyconrad)

projector = pyronn_torch.ConeBeamProjector.from_conrad_config()

The configuration can then be done using CONRAD (startable using conrad from command line)
