Paper Abstract

A new inversion method for diffuse optical tomography is proposed. This is a multistage algorithm, that uses a signal subspace-based method to simplify the inverse problem and proposes a guided iterative inversion process to improve the imaging. First, subspace-based analysis is used to determine the voxels that definitely belong to the background and exclude them from further consideration. Then, the pseudo-inverse technique is applied for reconstruction. In the final stage, the reconstruction is improved iteratively by finding and excluding more voxels belonging to background. The method reduces the ill-posedness of the image reconstruction problem iteratively such that good imaging results are obtained for multiple heterogeneities having complicated geometries even in the presence of 3% additive white noise.
