Paper Abstract

Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) is an emerging technique for biomedical imaging. The imaging quality of the DOT strongly depends on the reconstruction algorithm. In this paper, four inhomogeneities with various shapes of absorption distributions are simulated by a continues-wave DOT system. The DOT images are obtained based on the simultaneous iterative reconstruction technique (SIRT) method. To solve the trade-off problem between time consumption of reconstruction process and accuracy of reconstructed image, the iteration process needs a optimization criterion in algorithm. In this paper, the comparison between the root mean square error (RMSE) and the convergence rate (CR) in SIRT algorithm are demonstrated. From the simulation results, the CR reveals the information of global minimum in the iteration process. Based on the CR calculation, the SIRT can offer higher efficient image reconstructing in DOT system.
