1. A method for generating a super-resolution image of an object of interest comprising:
providing an initial low-resolution image of an object of interest;
projecting the initial low-resolution image into a high-resolution grid, wherein the high-resolution grid defines a higher resolution than the initial low-resolution image;
providing a plurality of low-resolution images of the object of interest obtained from a plurality of different positions relative to the object of interest;
registering the plurality of low-resolution images within the high-resolution grid such that each image of the plurality of images is shifted less than one pixel away from the initial low-resolution image;
projecting the plurality of low-resolution images into the high-resolution grid to provide an intermediate super-resolution image; and
removing back-projection effects from the intermediate super-resolution image using inverse problem solving to provide a super-resolution image of the object of interest.
