Reconstruction-classification method for quantitative photoacoustic tomography
Author(s): Emma Malone; Samuel Powell; Ben T. Cox; Simon Arridge

Paper Abstract

We propose a combined reconstruction-classification method for simultaneously recovering absorption and scattering in turbid media from images of absorbed optical energy. This method exploits knowledge that optical parameters are determined by a limited number of classes to iteratively improve their estimate. Numerical experiments show that the proposed approach allows for accurate recovery of absorption and scattering in two and three dimensions, and delivers superior image quality with respect to traditional reconstruction-only approaches.
