Table 1: Parameter setting for Bal’s algorithm and our proposed method. For our proposed correction, and depict the maximum class number (MCN) in the MIMS segmentation of artifacts and metal components, respectively.


Bal algorithm in [7]Prefilterig step , the scaling factor is set to 10,
the relationship between width and length of Gaussian filter is set to 2 .
Segmentation stepK-means segmentation using 5 classes with CT values: −950 (air),
0 (soft tissue), 200 (normal tissue), 750 (bone), 5000 (metal).
Inpainting stepLinear interpolation using 5 points in each symmetric side
