Abstract

What we believe to be a novel three-dimensional (3D) phase unwrapping algorithm is proposed to unwrap 3D wrapped-phase volumes. It depends on a quality map to unwrap the most reliable voxels first and the least reliable voxels last. The technique follows a discrete unwrapping path to perform the unwrapping process. The performance of this technique was tested on both simulated and real wrapped-phase maps. And it is found to be robust and fast compared with other 3D phase unwrapping algorithms.
