Paper Abstract

Both digital and physical phantoms are essential to the development of any new imaging modality. Digital phantoms are simply data sets that approximate the signals that would be measured by the imaging equipment. Physical phantoms are objects with similar physical properties to the human body. We compare several mathematical procedures for calculation of digital phantoms for optoacoustic imaging in general and describe convenient ways to construct physical phantoms for optoacoustic breast imaging. LOIS accurately reconstructs the expected images from both.
