Computed tomography (CT) aims to reconstruct an internal distribution of an object based on projection measurements. In the case of a limited number of projections, the reconstruction problem becomes significantly ill-posed. Practically, reconstruction algorithms play a crucial role in overcoming this problem. In the case of missing or incomplete data, and in order to improve the quality of the reconstruction image, the choice of a sparse regularisation by adding l1 norm is needed. The reconstruction problem is then based on using proximal operators. We are interested in the Douglas-Rachford method and employ total variation (TV) regularization. An efficient technique based on these concepts is proposed in this study. The primary goal is to achieve high-quality reconstructed images in terms of PSNR parameter and relative error. The numerical simulation results demonstrate that the suggested technique minimizes noise and artifacts while preserving structural information. The results are encouraging and indicate the effectiveness of the proposed strategy.
