This paper tries to address the problem of binary CT image reconstruction in non-destructive detection with an algorithm based on compressed sensing (CS) and Otsu’s method, which could reconstruct binary CT image of test object from incomplete detection data. According to binary CT image characteristics, we employ Splitbregman method based on L1/2 regularization to solve piecewise constant region reconstruction. To improve the reconstructed image quality from incomplete detection data, we utilize a priori knowledge and Otsu’s method as the optimization constraint. In our study, we make numerical simulation to investigate our proposed method, and compare reconstructed results from different reconstruction methods. Finally, the experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method could effectively reduce noise and suppress artifacts, and reconstruct high-quality binary image from incomplete detection data.
