Is there some source code available to deal with streaking artifacts arising from high contrast in CT images?
Here is an example axial slice:
The bright blob is a cross-section of carotid artery, and the streaks emanating from it are the artifacts I would like to suppress.
Here is another slice from the same image, after the carotid has branched a bit:
I am most interested in is suppression of high-intensity artifacts close the the vessels, which could potentially be confused with vessel branches.
