Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) is an emerging functional medical imaging modality which aims to recover the optical properties of biological tissue. The forward problem of the light propagation of DOT can be modelled in the frequency domain as a diffusion equation with Robin boundary conditions. In the case of multilayered geometries with piecewise constant parameters, the forward problem is equivalent to a set of coupled Helmholtz equations. In this paper, we present solutions for the… Expand

Spatially varying optical property reconstruction using a finite element diffusion equation approximation.
TLDR
Results using simulated data suggest that qualitative images can be produced that readily highlight the location of absorption and scattering heterogeneities within a circular background region of close to 4 cm in diameter over a range of contrast levels, suggesting that absolute optical imaging involving simultaneous recovery of both absorption and scatter profiles in multicentimeter tissues geometries may prove to be extremely difficult.
