Paper Abstract

The bulk of our work on imaging the spatial distribution of NIR absorption in biological tissue has employed various perturbation methods for the image reconstructions. In the last two years, members of our group, have also been actively investigating the use of neural net algorithms for this purpose. An important lesson of our first round of image reconstruction by this method is the importance of preprocessing operations, i.e., making use of information from sources other than the intensity- or flux-measurement data to restrict the set of possible solutions.
