<p><b>Abstract</b>—We present a method for restoration of noisy tomographic images for detecting thin objects, such as explosives. Use of a weighted mean-square estimate optimizes the solution to place emphasis on the infrequent, but significant local structure associated with thin objects. Experimental results show successful restoration at very high noise levels.</p>
