Paper Abstract

Computational speed and available memory size on a single processor are two limiting factors when using the frequency-domain equation of radiative transport (FD-ERT) as a forward and inverse model to reconstruct three-dimensional (3D) tomographic images. In this work, we report on a parallel, multiprocessor reducedspace sequential quadratic programming (RSQP) approach to improve computational speed and reduce memory requirement. To evaluate and quantify the performance of the code, we performed simulation studies employing a 3D numerical mouse model. Furthermore, we tested the algorithm with experimental data obtained from tumor bearing mice.
