Optical tomography using the SCIRun problem solving environment: Preliminary results for three-dimensional geometries and parallel processing.

Abstract

We present a 3D implementation of the UCL imaging package for absorption and scatter reconstruction from time-resolved data (TOAST), embedded in the SCIRun interactive simulation and visualization package developed at the University of Utah. SCIRun is a scientific programming environment that allows the interactive donstruction, debugging, and steering of large-scale scientific computations. Using this "computational workbench," a scientist can design and modify simulations interactively via a dataflow programming model. SCIRun enables scientists to design and modify model geometry, interactively change simulation parameters and boundary condititions, and interactively visualize geometric models and simulation results. Reconstruction of a segmented 3D head model is used as an example for demonstrating the capabilities of the combined TOAST/SCIRun approach.
