Application of stochastic variance reduction algorithms to iterative PET reconstruction. We investigated the SAGA and SVRG algorithms for non-TOF PET image reconstruction. Both similated data and a patient data sets were used in the analysis. We found that the stochastic algorithms can improve convergence rate and eliminate behaviour, commonly know as limit cycle behaviour, from PET reconstruction within 5 epochs.
