Paper Abstract

Fluorescence diffuse optical tomography (FDOT) has been widely used for in vivo small animal studies and the illposed problem in reconstruction can be eased by utilizing structural a priori obtained from an anatomic imaging modality. In this study, a multispectral fluorescence tomography (FT) is used, which has shown the ability to detect subtle shifts in the ICG absorption spectrum in our previous study. The imaging system is in trans-illumination mode with a swept-wavelength laser and a CCD on a rotation gantry and the structural image from the X-ray computed tomography is used to guide and constrain the FT reconstruction algorithm. In this work, a phantom with two inclusions filled with different fluorophores is utilized to evaluate whether the spectral information obtained using sweptwavelength laser can distinguish these two inclusions. The images are captured from 8 different views with three different wavelengths.
