Paper Abstract

A gantry-based hybrid fluorescence and x-ray computed tomography (FT/CT) system is developed for quantitative molecular imaging. The performance of the dual modality FT/CT system is evaluated using an irregular shaped phantom with an inclusion containing Indocyanine-Green (ICG). The anatomical data from CT provides structural a priori information for the FT inverse problem. Although a 4.2 mm diameter inclusion can be resolved in the reconstructed concentration image without any a priori information, ICG concentration in the inclusion is recovered with 75% error. On the other hand, the error in the recovered ICG concentration reduces to 15% when a priori information from CT is utilized. The results demonstrate that accurate fluorophore concentration can only be obtained when x-ray CT structural a priori information is available.
