Paper Abstract

Due to the exponential decay of the photon density wave, the accuracy of quantifying deeper portion of the large lesions by diffuse optical tomography in reflection geometry is much lower than that of the top portion. In this study, we introduce a modified depth correction method that incorporates the target depth information provided by co-registered ultrasound. Phantom experiments and clinical example will be presented to demonstrate the utility of the method in improving light quantification of large lesions.
