Paper Abstract

Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) is to reconstruct the images of internal optical parameters distribution from boundary measurements. Due to the amount of available boundary measurements is less than the number of unknown optical parameters to be recovered, this inverse problem usually shows the ill-posed characteristics. This will result in the problem of low reconstruction image quality. In this paper, an adaptive regularization method based on the objective function values is proposed, which reduces the ill-posed characteristics in the inverse problem by selecting an appropriate regularization value at teach iteration. Results from computer simulations indicated that using this regularization technique, DOT imaging quality is improved effectively. Furthermore, using the regularization technique, the sensitivity to noise of the reconstructed images can be decreased greatly.
